Although there has been significant progress in women’s pursuit for equality, there is still much work to be done in order to attain gender equality in our everyday life and in the professional environment. It is regrettable that there are still individuals who are vehemently opposed to gender equality. To overcome these hardships, many fellowships are created in order to provide women with support and opportunities in order for them to proceed with their research.
About Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship for Women:
The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) awards the Dorothy Marcus Senesh Fellowships to two female applicants from developing countries every other year so that they may pursue a degree in the field of peace.
This fellowship was created by the late Larry Senesh, a former professor of economics at the university of Colorado, in memory of his late wife, Dorothy. The reward consists of $5,000 per year for two years. The IPRA foundation was founded in 1990 and is a non-profit organization that benefits from tax exemption.
