About the Peace Scholarships
The Peace Scholarships comprise at least two grants that are awarded each year to
assist with research into: the impacts of militarism, militarisation and warfare;
alternatives to militarism, militarisation and warfare; or collective non-violent
responses to state violence. The Peace Scholarships are for students at any tertiary
education institution in Aotearoa New Zealand. Each grant is a minimum of $1,000 -
one is for a Maori or Moriori student, with the other/s open to any student with New
Zealand citizenship or permanent residency. The Peace Scholarships are entirely
funded by donations, including those collected during the White Poppies for Peace
Annual Appeal (17 to 24 April). The number and amount of the grants awarded annually
