About the Fellowships
Named after our founder, Dr. Terry Rynne, the Rynne Research Fellowship acknowledges that peacemaking covers a wide array of disciplines and topics ranging from interpersonal to international. The awards are intended to fund work for a two-month period during the summer. Faculty and administrators are encouraged to submit a research proposal of their choice or a topic in one of the Center's priority research areas.
The Center for Peacemaking announces an award of two $2,500 research grants to two Marquette faculty or administrators to advance research on an aspect of nonviolent peacemaking.
Apply for a Fellowship
Rynne Research Fellowships are available to Marquette faculty and administrators. The funding provided is intended for use during the summer session.
