Winston Fellowship for World Peace
The Winston Fellowship is awarded each year to an international or indigenous participant
at the Summer Peacebuilding Institute. The Fellowship is intended for an organization
that seeks training for someone new to the peacebuilding field.
Robert Winston Scrivner was a driving force behind many life-changing commitments
to peace. In 1983 he founded the Winston Foundation for World Peace. He died a year
later but not before appointing 10 trustees to guide the work of the foundation. Scrivner
instructed them that, “The Winston Foundation for World Peace should be thought of
as a place where the most promising individuals or fledgling groups would naturally
turn for their first or very early support.” The foundation closed in August 1999
after making grants of some $15 million to international security projects.
CJP and the Summer Peacebuilding Institute are grateful for his gift to train new
peacebuilders around the world.
Applications for the Winston Fellowship are due by January 31, 2019.
Award decisions will be made by February 15, 2019.
