First-year students, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to apply for Davis Projects for Peace grants.
Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for all undergraduates enrolled as of the fall term at any of the 90 American colleges and universities in the Davis United World College Scholars Program (including Yale). These students are invited to design grassroots projects that they will implement during the following summer, either in the U.S. or abroad. Individuals or groups of undergraduate students from the same institution may submit proposals. The 100 projects judged to be the most promising and do-able will be funded at $10,000 each. The objective is to encourage and support today’s motivated youth to create and try out their own ideas for building peace in the 21st century. For more information, visit the Davis Projects for Peace website; applicants may also wish to look at winning proposals from past years.
Each year, Yale may nominate one proposal for funding and one alternate proposal that might be funded as well. The campus nomination process is coordinated through Fellowship Programs, at the Yale Center for International & Professional Experience.
The date on this announcement reflects the Yale campus deadline.
