PEO International Peace Scholarships for Women – USA and Canada
About the PEO International Peace Scholarship
Education, according to PEO members, is important to global peace and understanding. Although the scholarship is designed to cover all academic and personal expenses, it is offered based on demonstrated financial need.
The P.E.O. International Peace Scholarship Fund assists women from outside the United States and Canada who are pursuing advanced degrees at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada, with the expectation that students will return to their home countries and use their education to make a positive impact and foster global peace.
A candidate must have completed a full year of study, be enrolled, and remain in the United States for the whole school year to be eligible for her first scholarship.
Doctoral students who are applying for the first time must have completed their coursework and are exclusively working on their dissertations.
Scholarships are available for international students attending Cottey College.
A student who is the U.S. or Canadian citizen or permanent resident is not eligible. Note that a student who is merely residing for tax purposes is permissible.
Online courses, research, internships, and practical training that are not coupled with coursework are not eligible for scholarships.
