The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandies University in the United States of America calls for the Sidney Topol Fellowship in Nonviolence Practice.
This is the full tuition fellowship for the Masters of Art in Conflict Resolution and Coexistence. Practice honors the work of peace advocate, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Sidney Topol, through the establishment of a full-tuition scholarship to the Master’s Degree program in Coexistence and Conflict (COEX) at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. The Master’s Degree in Coexistence and Conflict at Brandeis University trains students to recognize, understand and begin to heal the ethnic, religious and cultural fault lines that endanger our world.
In order to apply for Sidney Topol Fellowship, candidates must submit an online application to the Coexistence and Conflict program. In addition to submitting a complete application, fellowship applicants must submit a personal essay which outlines their prior work in nonviolence, and their proposed work, and how completing the MA in Coexistence and Conflict will help them be successful in these endeavors. Furthermore, candidates might have to attend an interview either by phone or in person.
