Keough School’s Kroc Institute welcomes five new PhD students, names fellowship recipients

Five new students representing four disciplines have arrived at the Keough School’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies as part of its interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Peace Studies in fall 2023. Incoming students were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants from around the world. These students join the Institute’s twenty-six other doctoral students, for a total of thirty-one students in the 2023-24 academic year.

“Our incoming students were selected from an applicant pool of more than 400—our largest ever number of applications,” said Caroline Hughes, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., Chair in Peace Studies and director of doctoral studies. “Among our new cohort, we have four speakers of Arabic and one of Persian, not to mention language competencies in Indonesian, Turkish, and French. We are delighted to welcome these five PhD students.”

The doctoral program is a partnership between the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, and the University of Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters departments of anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, and theology.
