Call for Proposals: Cohen Peace Fellowship

The call to submit proposals for the Benjamin V. Cohen Peace Fellowship is open! The Fellowship provides support to conduct basic or applied research on topics related to peace. Ball State faculty members AND graduate students are eligible to apply. 

  • For faculty members funds may be used for salary, supplies, expenses, and/or travel. Preference will be given to tenure track faculty members at Ball State University. 
  • For graduate students, funds may be used for an assistantship stipend, supplies, expenses, and/or travel and may also include tuition remission during the academic time period of the fellowship.

Applicants must consult with the staff of Sponsored Projects Administration by October 1, 2016 to receive assistance in the development of their proposals, including the narrative and budget. Failure to do this will render an application ineligible for further consideration.

Completed applications and all required materials are due to the SPA by 5:00 PM on October 31, 2016. SPA will route the completed applications to the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies. The Cohen Proposal Evaluation Committee will then review the proposals.

Projects that focus on aspects of structural violence, direct violence, and/or social justice are permissible. You must clearly and concretely connect your focus with the mission of the Cohen Fund. How will your project expand knowledge and/or solve practical problems associated with issues affecting world peace to improve the human condition?

Some examples of projects include sexism, hydrology, criminality, racism, homelessness, human rights, suicide prevention, health disparities, sports for development, land use and ecosystems among others

Projects that involve peace building, peace making, or peace keeping are consistent with the mission of the Cohen Fund.
