Dissertations from a broad range of disciplines and interdisciplinary fields are eligible. Peace Scholars work at their universities or appropriate field research sites.

They may not be combined with any other major award or fellowship except in special circumstances and with the written concurrence of the Institute. Peace Scholars on J-1 visa status must comply with the two-year home physical residence requirement, for which the Institute will no request a waiver.
