Ever since the Peace Research Grants Fund was created in 2002, the IPRA Foundation has awarded grants to help fund peace research projects in places as diverse as Argentina, Bosnia, inner city communities in the United States, the Middle East, the Philippines, the Punjab, and Uganda.  Please see Peace Research Grants 2002-2012 for details of the many wonderful projects they have funded from 2002 through 2012.  The original “Small Peace Research Grants Program” was replaced by the current IPRA Foundation Peace Research Grants Program in 2013 with larger grants available of up to USD 5,000.

There are two granting cycles per year as follows:

Cycle 1:    Applications open January 1 – Deadline February 28 or 29
Cycle 2:   Applications open July 1 – Deadline August 31

  1. Read the Instructions for the Peace Research Grants thoroughly.
  2. Applications will only be accepted during the application windows.

The Peace Research Grant Administrator will do an initial review of your project for this award. If your application is deemed suitable, it will be sent out to three IPRA Foundation board members for review.

Applicants may receive only one Peace Research grant.  The IPRA Foundation Peace Research Grants are small grants intended to assist scholars in undertaking small research projects. These grants are to individuals, not to institutions or organizations. The Foundation does not not allow overhead costs or indirect administrative costs to be covered as part of the grant.  The Foundation does not allow rent and other normal living expenses as part of the budget.


Only one grant will be awarded to any applicant from the Peace Research Grant Program.  If you have previously received a grant, please do not apply for another.

Other ineligible applicants include family members, students or people with other unacceptable relationships to a current or past member of the Board of Directors of the IPRA Foundation or non-Board reviewer, members of the Board of Directors of the IPRA Foundation, or non-Board reviewers.


Peace Research grants up to USD 5,000 to support systemic observation or study of conflict phenomena and peace strategies.
