Davis Projects for Peace Application Process

The application process for Summer 2021 is now open!  Click here to apply

*please note the deadline has been extended to Wednesday, January 20th at 11:59p

To be considered for 2021 Davis Projects for Peace, a student (or group of students) must first meet with Kira O’Brien to discuss their project idea with him and then complete an online application. This includes preparing a written statement describing the project (who, what, where, how) as well as expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (not to exceed two pages). Applicants must also submit a budget (one separate page). 

A campus committee will evaluate applications and after an in-person interview process, will select finalists to submit to the Projects for Peace. Final review and approval of all recommended proposals from individual campuses rests solely with the office of the Davis UWC Scholars Program, which will then forward the appropriate grant funds for winning project(s) to Princeton to be distributed by the Pace Center to the student winners.
