WILPF Women, Peace and Security Fellowship

The Women, Peace and Security Programme of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) offers fellowships for the period of four to six months through the New York City UN office. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this opportunity is remote for the foreseeable future. Application process is ongoing.

As a feminist, anti-militarist membership organisation, WILPF is dedicated to building a global movement in the pursuit of peace and the fulfilment of human rights. 

This competitive fellowship is primarily aimed at individuals early in their careers who are interested in women, peace and security issues related to disarmament and women’s human rights.

The experience offers an opportunity to research and write on the topic and gain experience with a non-governmental organisation.

WILPF generally hires fellows to join the NY WPS team during three different periods annually: January-May, May-August, and September-December. The interns will be provided a stipend.

The fellow should have the ability to commit to four full days per week.

Application process is ongoing. 


Main Criteria

To be considered for the fellowship, applicants should submit a one or two-page resume indicating education, relevant past activities and experience, a cover letter, two references, and a writing sample of no more than five pages. 

Candidates should be currently enrolled in a graduate programme or have recently graduated with studies in international relations, law, political science, or a related field.
