Rynne Research Fellowships

Named after our founder, Dr. Terry Rynne, the Rynne Research Fellowship acknowledges that peacemaking covers a wide array of disciplines and topics ranging from interpersonal to international. The awards are intended to fund work for a two-month period during the summer. Faculty and administrators are encouraged to submit a research proposal of their choice or a topic in one of the center's priority research areas.

The Center for Peacemaking announces an award of two $3,500 research grants to two Marquette faculty or administrators to advance research on an aspect of nonviolent peacemaking.

Rynne Research Fellowships are available to Marquette faculty and administrators. The funding provided is intended for use during the summer session. If you are interested in applying, please contact Fr. T. Michael McNulty, S.J. to discuss your project idea and complete the application materials, including a proposed budget.

Past Rynne Research Fellowship recipients may apply again; however, there must be at least four years between awards.

Application process

Please complete the application materials and submit to T. Michael McNulty, S.J. by March 1, 2019.
