The International Peace Scholarship Fund, established in 1949, is a program which provides scholarships for selected women from other countries for graduate study in the United States and Canada. Members of P.E.O. believe that education is fundamental to world peace and understanding.

The scholarship is based upon demonstrated need; however, the award is not intended to cover all academic or personal expenses. At the time of application, the applicant is required to indicate additional financial resources adequate to meet her estimated expenses. Examples of additional resources are personal and family funds, tuition waivers, work scholarships, teaching assistantships, study grants and other scholarships.

The maximum amount awarded to a student is $12,500. Lesser amounts may be awarded according to individual needs.

Eligibility Form Period runs from September 15-December 15 every year.

Applications are accepted from September 15-March 1 for currently enrolled students and April 1 for students beginning enrollment.  

The dates displayed above are those for currently enrolled students.

Please do not provide any email address with a .edu extension. Use a personal email address instead of your school email address. The firewalls of educational institutions may block important messages from the P.E.O. system, which could cause severe delays in the application process.
