The Program on Justice and Peace (JUPS) and the Center for Social Justice (CSJ) announce the annual 100 Projects for Peace Call for Proposals!
Davis 100 Projects for Peace is an initiative for undergraduate students at Georgetown (a Davis United World College Scholars Program partner school) to design their own grassroots projects – anywhere in the world – which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties. We encourage applicants to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on conflict resolution, reconciliation, building understanding and breaking down barriers which cause conflict, and finding solutions for resolving conflict and maintaining peace. One project from GU will be selected for funding of $10,000.
How does a student (or group of students) apply?
(1) Cover letter describing: a) your academic, work and personal experiences motivating you to pursue this peace proposal; b) plans for sharing your peace work with the GU community after completion
(2) Resume or CV of all involved students
(3) Name/contact information of staff/faculty member who will serve as advisor
(4) Project proposal (not to exceed 2 pages) describing: a) project’s goals and plans (who, what where, how); b) expected outcomes and prospects for future impact
(5) Detailed 1-page budget not to exceed $10,000, including other funding sources
(6) A letter of pre-approval from parties and organizations involved in the project
Applications are due January 18th, 2013.
