The Peace Studies Fund


“In diversity there is beauty and there is strength”

(Maya Angelou)

Founded by students of the Master of Arts Program in Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation at the Leopold-Franzens University in Innsbruck, Austria.

The Peace Studies Fund e.V. aims to support students of the MA Program in Peace Studies by contributing to the program’s existing scholarship. Our key ideas are to strengthen the solidarity we experienced within the program, and increase the chance of participation, and graduation, for students from all over the world who are interested and qualified to enroll in this special program and who would otherwise be hindered by financial problems. Furthermore, the Fund strengthens the community of current and former peace students by opening a space for supporting each other.
