Davis Projects for Peace is being made possible by Kathryn Wasserman Davis, an accomplished internationalist and philanthropist. Upon the occasion of her 100th birthday in February of 2007, Mrs. Davis, mother of Shelby M.C. Davis, who funds the Davis UWC Scholars Program, chose to celebrate her milestone by committing $1 million for one hundred Projects for Peace. “I want to use my 100th birthday to help young people launch some immediate initiatives — things that they can do during the summer of 2007 — that will bring new thinking to the prospects of peace in the world,” said Mrs. Davis in 2007. Because the students who have received awards since 2007 have accomplished so much by implementing projects of their own design, Mrs. Davis is continuing the Davis projects for peace for the summer of 2013.
To be considered, a student (or group of students) must prepare a written statement that describes the project (who, what, where, how), including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact. this narrative must not exceed two pages. Applicants must also include a detailed budget of not more than one page. Proposals should include pre-approval of all involved parties and organizations that will play roles in the project. The two-page proposal (11-point type or larger) and one-page budget should be submitted electronically to Marci Bernard, Director of Corporate, Foundation, and Government Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org. Student queries should be directed to Marci Bernard, as communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.
