The War and Peace Studies Fellows Program brings students together from across the disciplines – the sciences, social sciences and humanities – to engage in an ongoing discussion of the social, political, moral and technological dimensions of international conflict and cooperation.
Each year the Fellows help organize a series of events on campus, including presentations by internationally renowned experts, movies that bear on topics related to war and peace, and discussions with Dartmouth faculty. The Fellows help select the topics, speakers and films, and they are invited to meet with the speakers in small groups after the public events.
In the Spring, student fellows spend a weekend in Washington, DC, with Professor Ben Valentino, War & Peace Studies Coordinator, meeting with elected officials, senior officials in the executive branch of the U.S. government, and political activists working for a variety of non-governmental organizations.
The War and Peace Studies Program invites applications from prospective Fellows each Spring. Fellows are expected to participate in scheduled events in at least two of the three terms (fall, winter, spring). Ordinarily, Fellows must be enrolled at Dartmouth during those two terms, although applications from students who will continue to be around campus in one off-term will be considered.
Fellows are initially appointed for a single year, but are typically reappointed for additional years. We welcome applications from enthusiastic sophomores, juniors and seniors. First year students are encouraged to attend public events.
