  About the Peace Scholarships

The Peace Scholarships comprise grants that are awarded to assist with the costs of research that includes analysis of one or more of these topics:

  • the impacts of militarism, militarisation, military deployment and / or warfare;
  • alternatives to militarism, militarisation, military deployment and / or warfare;
  • opposition to militarism, militarisation, military deployment and / or warfare;
  • military recruitment practices and messaging;
  • state construction of national identity based on militarism and militarisation;
  • the military-industrial complex; or
  • media coverage of militarism, militarisation, military deployment and / or warfare.

Research may be on the historical and / or present-day aspects of any of the above topics. Preference will be given to research focussed on Aotearoa New Zealand, although applications for research focussed on the Pacific will be considered. The Peace Scholarships are for New Zealand citizens or permanent residents studying at any tertiary education institution in Aotearoa New Zealand; each grant is a minimum of $1,000.

The White Poppy Peace Scholarships were launched by Professor Cynthia Enloe at her public lecture in Wellington on 30 October 2009. The first two Peace Scholarships were awarded in April 2010, two more in April 2011, one in 2012, one in 2013, and one in 2016.

  How to apply for a Peace Scholarship

Applications for Peace Scholarships open each year on Human Rights Day, 10 December, to assist with research costs during the following academic year - guidelines for applicants are available here and the application form is available on request.

  How you can support the Peace Scholarships

The White Poppy Peace Scholarships are entirely funded by donations, including those collected during the White Poppies for Peace Annual Appeal. The amount and number of grants awarded annually is determined by the amount raised during that year.
