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.


  • Applicants for the Sidney Topol Fellowship in Nonviolence Practice must prove the welfare and benefit their community from their personal commitment to nonviolent principles through prior volunteer or work projects.
  • Applicants must also commit to returning to their community within the next two years to establish projects in nonviolence.
  • During their year in residence, the Topol Fellows will be responsible for planning and coordinating the Sidney Topol Lecture in Nonviolence which will bring to campus a leader in the field.
  • Following their academic year in residence, Topol Fellows will secure necessary practicum placements in organizations that use nonviolence methods to achieve sustainable peace, or in organizations that have the commitment to developing such methods.
  • Furthermore, recipients of the Sidney Topol Fellowships in Nonviolence Practice will have to produce a report detailing their experiences at Heller and in the field and to share their expectations for furthering a career with a focus on the use of nonviolent methods in conflict-ridden areas.


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.
