The Balfour Project seeks an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on justice and equal rights. Acknowledging Britain’s continuing historical responsibilities, it works through popular education and advocacy to persuade the British Government to recognise the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel and uphold equal rights.
Following a successful pilot last academic year, they have announced the Peace Advocacy Fellowship scheme for 2020-21, offering ten scholarships for postgraduate students or final year undergraduates in the UK (each fellow receives a bursary of £700).
The fellowship provides knowledge and skills based workshops on a variety of topics, which are necessary for peace advocates. Each fellow will work on a research/advocacy project according to his/her interests and the organisation needs.
You can watch the Balfour Project Peace Advocacy Fellowship video, and enter the Call for Applicants via their website at https://balfourproject.org/APPLY
Applications are open between 7 September and 9 October. Some interviews may be held between 14-18 September, with others to follow after 9 October. The fellows will be appointed on 16 October.
Workshops will take place throughout the academic year in coordination with the fellows.
