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.
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 email@example.com for more information about how to apply.
