The Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies will award several graduate student fellowships for the 2019–2020 year. The fellowships cover in absentia tuition plus a stipend and health insurance for Cornell Ph.D. students whose research explicitly treats issues of security, conflict, or collective violence.
