ATTENTION: All applicants for the 2016-2017 Peace Scholarship program, please be aware of the deadline change indicated in the paragraph below: the deadline has been made a week earlier, Friday, December 4, 2015:
The competition for the 2016-2017 Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarship program is now open. PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CONCERN ABOUT A POSSIBLE US GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN, THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN CHANGED: The NEW deadline for applications for scholarships beginning in September 2016 is Friday, December 4, 2015, at 6:00 p.m./18:00 EST. Please note that the application system will shut automatically precisely at that time, so please plan accordingly. We recommend that you start your application as early as possible, and submit well before the precise time when the system closes. We cannot accept requests for late submission, including for technical reasons such as the system closing just as the Submit button is being pushed! For problems and questions, please email the Fellowship program at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for letters of reference is NOW SLIGHTLY LESS THAN one week later than for applications, on THURSDAY, December 10.
Please note that this is the last year we will use this application system (WebGrants)! While we hope to be able to transfer all data in this system into the new one that is currently under development, we strongly urge applicants to be sure they keep a copy of their application content in Word or another format. If you do not win a fellowship for 2016-2017 you can apply again for the next year, but you may not have access to this year's application within the system in order to be able to save time by cutting and pasting material into the new application.
