Columbia Graduate Student Fellowships

The Graduate Fellowship Program offers Columbia University students an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of research and practice in conflict resolution and social change. Fellows conduct interdisciplinary research projects or internships addressing conflict, violence, development and/or sustainable peace. Applicants can submit an individual or team proposal, and selected projects will receive financial award and the chance to present on their sponsored research or internship project at Columbia University in front of leaders, academics and activists in the peacebuilding and conflict resolution field.

This year AC4 will provide funding of up to $3,000 for individual projects, and one team of students for $6,000, to support interdisciplinary research or practice-based projects, including internships, addressing conflict, violence, development, and/or sustainable peace.

Selected projects include, but are not limited to: internships, doctoral dissertation research, master’s thesis research, or capstone projects.

Students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply!
