In the past the Sydney Peace Foundation has occasionally offered Postgraduate Scholarships to complete a Master of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies (MPACS) at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS), University of Sydney, for students from the world’s least developed countries.
When a scholarship or is being offered it will be advertised by the University’s Research Office News Bulletin and may also be advertised in relevant press.
Donations are gratefully accepted by the Foundation for full or a half scholarships, to which companies or individuals may be directly credited in this space as well as in our Annual Report.
In keeping with its mission to recognise and encourage expertise in the promotion of peace with justice, the Sydney Peace Foundation established the Youth Peace Initiative (YPI) in consultation with students and teachers from a number of NSW secondary schools. The purpose of YPI is both to enable and also to learn from the voices of Australian youth that speak out on issues relating to peace and social justice. It is a youth-driven, community development project, which not only promotes a critical literacy around peace with justice and nonviolence among young people, but also seeks to bring youth experiences and insights to bear on shaping the nature of that literacy.
