Opportunity Description

Award overview

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is awarding a peacebuilding prize to woman peacebuilders who have made significant peacebuilding contributions in conflict-prone and fragile countries or regions but their efforts have been often overlooked.  To this end, USIP intends to honor the inspirational work of women peacebuilders whose valor, leadership, and commitment to peace stand out as symbols of strength and hope. So, if you are the one who has played a key role in ending or prohibiting a conflict, it is for you to apply.
