Worth of Awards

  • Every other year (beginning in 1990) one woman receives school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.


  • Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from developing countries who have completed a Bachelor’s degree, who have been accepted into a graduate program and whose graduate work is to be focused on issues related to the goals of IPRA.
