IIPE 2014: How to Apply

Cancellation Notice:

It is with great regret that we announce that the 2014 International Institute on Peace Education has been cancelled.  Click here for more information.

The application deadline for full consideration for IIPE 2014 has been extended to April 15.

 Applications must be submitted by April 15, 2014 for full consideration.  

To assure that notices of acceptance are sent to all applicants in a timely fashion, we strongly encourage applicants to apply early.  

Notices of acceptances will be sent in late April.  

If you require an earlier response for funding or institutional purposes please contact the IIPE secretariat at info@i-i-p-e.org.


Acceptance Criteria

Acceptance for participation in the IIPE is based upon applicant ’s potential contribution to the goal of developing and strengthening peace education in the host region and toward a more global perspective on peace education among all participants. While we would like to accept everyone who applies, the number of applicants usually exceeds the places at each Institute. The IIPE attempts to practice the principles of peace education by engaging all participants in our short term learning community in an experience of participatory learning in which all of us can learn from each other (please see the philosophy page). We have found that increasing our numbers beyond 65 participants diminishes the effectiveness of this aspect of the institute, so we are unable to accept all applicants.  

Among other criteria, first priority is given to those applicants coming from the surrounding host region. The IIPE attempts to explore themes and issues that are particularly relevant to the host region and works to build regional solidarity among peace educators. Thus, a minimum of 50% of the participants will come from the host region. In selecting the remainder of the international participants we attempt to maintain a geographical balance and variety in experience and substantive expertise. All applicants should specifically demonstrate how they will apply their learnings in their countries or local communities as that will be a significant criteria of selection.  

As a learning community experience the IIPE requires full-time participation from all participants. You must be able to participate in the full period of the IIPE (July 6-13) for your application to be considered. If after acceptance a participant finds he or she must leave early or arrive late, their place will be given to another on the waiting list.

Scholarship

If you think you will need assistance (full or partial) please also complete the additional scholarship application. 

PLEASE NOTE: you must first submit a general application before completing the scholarship request.

Each year the IIPE receives many more requests for scholarship than can possibly be given – thus it is unlikely that we can support all requests.

Scholarships are allocated on the basis of follow-up plans to apply IIPE learnings to the applicant's future work in peace education. First priority will be given to regional participants.  We provide both full and partial scholarships. 

PLEASE NOTE:  IIPE scholarships are for participation fees only ($700 USD for 2014).  We do not provide any travel assistance.  All participants must raise their own travel funds.
