More Info

Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for students to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2012 - anywhere in the world - which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties.  Applicants are encouraged to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on conflict resolution, reconciliation, building understanding and breaking down barriers which cause conflict, and finding solutions for resolving conflict and maintaining peace.  Through a competition on over 90 campuses, projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.

To be considered, a student (or group of students) must prepare a written statement which describes the project (who, what, where, how) including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (not to exceed two pages) as well as a budget (one separate page).  All written project proposals require a heading to include the following: name of the participating institution, name of all student participants, title of project, country where the project will be performed.  Proposals should include pre-approval of all involved parties and organizations involved in the project.  The two-page proposal and one-page budget should be submitted electronically to the Brad Zakarin (b-zakarin@northwestern.edu). Queries should be directed to Brad as well.
