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 Peace Scholarships are for students at any tertiary education institution in Aotearoa New Zealand. Each grant is a minimum of $1,000 - one is for a Maori or Moriori student, with the other/s open to any student with New Zealand citizenship or permanent residency.
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, and one in 2013.
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.
There are two ways you can support the Peace Scholarships - by making a donation, or by helping to collect donations for white poppies. Your generosity will help to promote peace by directly supporting research into militarism, militarisation and war.
To make a donation by cheque, please use the form available here; or if you would prefer to make a donation by direct credit or internet banking, please email White Poppy Peace Scholarships and we will provide the details for you. A tax credit receipt is sent for all donations.
