Twenty-one students from 16 countries have been admitted to the Kroc Institute’s Master’s in International Peace Studies program for fall 2014. The new students hail from Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Colombia, Congo, Ethiopia, India, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Mexico, the Philippines, Poland, Sierra Leone, Singapore and the United States.
"This incoming class brings a wealth of practical experience working for peace and justice around the globe," said Susan St. Ville, director of the master's program. "We are eager to welcome them to the Kroc Institute and to foster their continued development as peacebuilders."
The Kroc Institute’s two-year master’s in international peace studies prepares students for careers in public policy, political change, organizational management or conflict analysis and transformation.
Each student receives a full scholarship from the Kroc Institute and a stipend for housing and living expenses for two years, including a six-month internship at a leading organization in Cape Town (South Africa), Colombia (Cartagena), Gulu (Uganda), Mindanao (the Philippines), Israel/Palestine, or Washington, D.C.
