Projects for Peace

Projects for Peace


The Projects for Peace program enables undergraduates around the country to design grassroots "projects for peace" that use a summer to address global social issues. The grant provides up to $10,000 for a summer project focused on some dimension of enabling peace in a global world. At Northwestern, the Office of Fellowships facilitates the grant process. One Northwestern student is awarded the Projects for Peace grant each year. First-, second-, and third-year students are eligible to apply.

Application Process

Students may submit an application for themselves or as part of a group of up to four Northwestern students.  The application includes a project proposal, a proposed budget, and letters of affiliation from any relevant third parties. 

The Office of Fellowships convenes a staff and faculty committee to choose one winner per year.  Northwestern may also nominate a second award to be considered by the Davis Foundation.

The next campus deadline is Monday, January 14, 2019.

Please contact Jason Kelly Roberts at for more information about how to apply.
