Janna Hunter-Bowman, a Notre Dame doctoral student in theology and peace studies, has been named the first recipient of the Steven D. Pepe Ph.D. Fellowship in Peace Studies.
Hunter-Bowman, whose research integrates moral theology and peace studies, is the first student in the Kroc Institute’s joint theology and peace studies Ph.D. program. She has published the results of her research on grassroots movements and human rights in several journals and edited volumes.
The Pepe Fellowships are the result of a generous gift from Steven D. Pepe ’65, a retired U.S. magistrate judge (Michigan) and member of the Kroc Institute’s Advisory Council. Pepe’s gift will provide ongoing support for a doctoral student in peace studies who has distinguished him/herself in research, teaching, or service.
