  • Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Joan B. Kroc, the Kroc Institute offers students who are accepted into the master’s program a full scholarship and a stipend for housing and living expenses.

Funding
Students admitted to the master’s program receive a scholarship that covers the full cost of two years of graduate tuition at the University of Notre Dame. Master’s students also receive a stipend for housing and living expenses, and support for the 6-month internship, including travel to and from a Kroc Institute field site in Africa, Asia, Jerusalem, Latin America or the United States.

The living expense stipend for the 2014-15 academic year was $15,200. Graduate stipends are intended to cover costs such as housing, telephone, food, books, supplies, and travel for students while in residence at Notre Dame and during the internship. The Notre Dame Graduate School makes housing available to students. Off-campus rental housing also is available.

Professional development
Master’s students in International Peace Studies are immersed in professional development and career preparation from their first day on campus. As a complement to their academic classwork, every student takes a two-semester Reflective Practice & Professional Development Seminar, designed to enhance leadership skills, support planning for vocational direction, and sharpen tools for professional success.

Master’s students also may apply for professional development funding from the Kroc Institute to support travel and/or other expenses related to participation in a conference or other academic or professional event.

Kroc Institute faculty also advise and mentor students on an individual basis, while the Kroc Institute and Notre Dame offer many opportunities for networking with alumni and other professionals working in peace and justice related positions around the world.

The deadline for applications is December 15 each year
