Stanford Center on International Conflict and Negotiation (SCICN)

Graduate Fellowships and Awards


SCICN Graduate Fellows Program

Each year, SCICN selects approximately fifteen fellows from across the professional schools and graduate programs within the university who work on isses related to international or intergroup conflict processes, conflict resolution or peacebuilding.

Graduate fellows meet regularly with faculty, researchers, and respected practitioners from around the world. A key component of the program is the opportunity to engage real world practitioners in extended conversation and to participate in the theory/practice workshops described here. During the winter and spring quarters, the fellows attend an SCICN speaker series and meet with invited speakers over an informal meal.
