The Conflict Research Fellowship (CRF) is the CRP's fellowship programme managed by our partners, Social Science Research Council (SSRC). The Conflict Research Fellowship offers yearlong support for experienced scholars based at a university or NGO. 

In line with the Conflict Research Programme, successful fellowship candidates will need to examine how different interventions affect violent conflict and/or the risk of renewed violent conflict; analyze "what works" to counter drivers of conflict; and explore the contextual factors that affect the efficacy of such interventions, including the linkages among international, national, state, and local level dynamics. 

The deadline for the 2019 Conflict Research Fellows has now closed.
