The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) is pleased to announce its sixth annual Cora Weiss Fellowship for Young Women Peacebuilders. Launched in 2015, the Fellowship aims to support the development of young women peacebuilders and ensure that more young people share Cora’s vision for sustainable peace and gender equality as strong and integral parts of our global culture. The Fellowship provides a young woman with the opportunities and platforms to elevate the concerns and priorities of women and girls in their country in global policy discussions at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The Cora Weiss Fellow will have the opportunity to work with GNWP for one year in:
- Global advocacy at the UN to promote the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 1325 on Women and Peace and Security, UNSCR 2250 on Youth and Peace and Security, their supporting resolutions, and related laws and policies;
- Implementation of GNWP’s various programs including but not limited to Localization of UNSCR 1325, national action planning on WPS, and the Young Women+ Leaders for Peace;
- Research and development of training and advocacy materials on WPS, YPS and humanitarian action; and
- Administrative support in all areas of GNWP operations.
The Fellowship year will commence in October 2022 and end in October 2023. GNWP will cover roundtrip airfare from the country of origin to New York and health insurance. GNWP will also provide the Fellow with a stipend to cover room and board, local transportation, and other personal expenses for one year.
The deadline for application is 15 July 2022. To view the full application with more details, please visit: https://gnwp.org/fellowship/.
