FOR STUDENTS

Davis Projects for Peace $10,000 Fellowship

Deadline to apply for summer funding: Monday, February 2, 2018 by 12 noon

Davis Projects for Peace offers a $10,000 fellowship for an MIT undergraduate student project that promotes peace. The aim is to “encourage and support today's motivated youth to create and try out their own ideas for building peace.” 

Projects must be implemented during the summer of 2018. 

Successful past projects have focused on: 

  • fostering empathy
  • promoting cross-cultural understanding
  • revitalization of post-conflict and post-disaster communities
  • justice and fair processes

Applications from student groups and individuals are welcome. The recipient must be an MIT undergraduate, but a team may include graduate students or others.
