Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for all students at the Davis United World College Scholars Program schools to design their own grassroots projects for peace that they themselves will implement anywhere in the world during the summer of 2013. Through a competition on more than 90 campuses, 100 projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.
 
Funding
Davis Projects for Peace is being funded by Kathryn W. Davis, a lifelong internationalist and philanthropist (who earned a B.A. from Wellesley, an M.A. from Columbia, and a Ph.D. from the University of Geneva) who is now over 101 years old. She is the mother of Shelby M.C. Davis who funds the Davis United World College Scholars Program currently involving over more than 90 American colleges and universities. Mrs. Davis feels some urgency to spark initiatives for building prospects for peace in the world and so is committing $1 million to fund one hundred $10,000 projects for peace. She believes that today's youth— tomorrow's leaders— ought to be challenged to formulate and test their own ideas.

Definition
Intentionally, no clear definition is offered so as not to limit the imagination. Students are charged with defining what a "project for peace" might be. The hope is to encourage creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The overall program (all 100 projects) is to be worldwide in scope and impact, but specific projects may be undertaken anywhere and as grassroots as desired, including in the U.S.
 
Eligibility
Undergraduate students at invited schools (including seniors who would complete their projects after graduation) are eligible. Groups of students from the same campus, as well as individual students, may submit proposals.
 
Deadline for Submitting the Proposal: January 30, 2013
