Have you heard about the Davis Projects for Peace, a program which honors Kathryn Wasserman Davis, a 102 year old philanthropist who is interested in finding new ways to advance world peace.
Undergraduate students at more than 90 college campuses across the United States, including those who will graduate this academic year, are eligible to design and submit proposals that address the goal of improving the prospects for peace in the 21st century. The top submissions from the participating campuses, including at least one from Middlebury, will receive funding of $10,000 from Mrs. Davis with which to initiate projects anywhere in the world during the summer of 2010.
If you are interested, make sure to attend the Q and A session at Old Stone Mill on Monday November 16, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. Students who have been recipients of past Davis Project for Peace funding, as well as students whose projects were supported by the College, will be available to answer questions and speak about their individual experiences. It will be an excellent opportunity to see firsthand what Middlebury students have accomplished with the support of this Initiative.
This is an initiative for all undergraduates, and not those solely interested in politics, the social sciences, or international studies. Read more
