Projects for Peace
Projects for Peace is open to all undergraduates at the 90 institutions (including Brown) that are part of the Davis United World College Scholars Program. Students are invited to design grassroots projects that they will implement during the summer. The 100 projects judged to be the most promising and feasible will be funded at $10,000 each. The program is made possible by Kathryn Wasserman Davis, an accomplished internationalist and philanthropist, who celebrated her 105th birthday in 2012. She was so pleased with the outcome that she has continued funding these projects.
All undergraduates including seniors who would complete their projects after graduation are eligible. Groups of students from the same campus, as well as individual students, may submit proposals.
$10,000 in support of the winning project.
Brown will select among its internal applicant pool one student proposal and one alternate student proposal. The two chosen applicants from Brown will have a short time to revise their proposals in time for the February deadline.
