Davis Projects for Peace Summer 2019 $10K Grant Opportunity

UC Berkeley Undergrads: Apply for a $10,000 grant to fund your grassroots project for peace!

Projects for Peace is an initiative open to undergraduates at UC Berkeley to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2019 – 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. Projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.
