The Marquette University Center for Transnational Justice offers funding for research conducted by graduate students enrolled in the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences. The Center awards two Graduate Student Research Grants for work on an issue of economic, political, or social justice that crosses national borders. Issue areas include but are not limited to immigration, forced migration and human trafficking, human rights, economic development, global trade and finance, pandemic diseases, and climate change.
Szymczak Peacemaking Fellowship Program: The Szymczak family provides the Center for Peacemaking with an annual donation to fund student projects that put nonviolence into action. Students have the option to work for an established organization or to create their own project. Upon their return, Szymczak Peacemaking Fellows present their work to the community in a formal presentation designed to showcase the different ways Marquette students are engaging in the struggle for peace and justice through the practice of nonviolence.
Szymczak Peacemaking Fellowships foster the development of nonviolent peacemakers by providing students the opportunity to put nonviolence into practice. Fellowships support individuals as they work to transform structures and relationships to provide for the wellbeing of all.

A brief description of the institution’s program(s) to encourage faculty research in sustainability:
The Marquette University Center for Transnational Justice offers a summer faculty fellowship to an innovative, multidisciplinary proposal submitted by a faculty team from the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
The faculty teams must draw one expertise from any two of the following divisions of the College of Arts and Sciences: the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Each faculty member must hold a permanent tenure track appointment as full-time faculty in the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, be returning to Marquette for the next two academic years, and must have a terminal degree. All team members must play an active role in the project.
The proposal must explore an issue of economic, political, or social justice that crosses national borders. Issue areas include but are not limited to human rights, migration and immigration, economic development, global trade and finance, responses to pandemic diseases, and climate change.
Rynne Research Fellowship: Named after Marquette’s Center for Peacemaking founder, Dr. Terrence (Terry) Rynne, the Rynne Research Fellowship acknowledges that peacemaking covers a wide array of disciplines and topics ranging from interpersonal to international. The awards are intended to fund work for a two-month period during the summer. Faculty and administrators are encouraged to submit a research proposal of their choice or a topic in one of the Center's research areas.
The Center for Peacemaking announces an award of two $2,500 research grants to two Marquette faculty or administrators to advance research on an aspect of nonviolent peacemaking.
