Davis Projects for PeaceJanuary 6, 2012
Once again, the Draper Center for Community Partnerships is pleased to participate in the Davis United World College Scholars Program in identifying qualified proposals from Pomona College students in consideration for a Davis Projects for Peace award.
Davis Projects for Peace are $10,000 awards given to a students (or group of students) at participating colleges to implement a grassroots project which promotes peace and addresses the root causes of conflict among parties. The project must be implemented in the summer of 2012.
More information, including a detailed description of possible partnership projects, can be found at their website.
Pomona College and the Draper Center are particularly interested in feasible and sustainable projects which are well-conceived and framed around mutually-beneficial partnerships. A detailed application includes the following:
- A written statement which describes the project (who, what, where, how) including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (not to exceed two pages). All written project proposals require a heading to include the following: name of the participating institution, name of all student participants, title of project, country where the project will be performed.
- A detailed and itemized budget (one separate page).
- Evidence of pre-approval of all involved parties and organizations involved in the project.
- One letter of recommendation.
- An unofficial transcript for each student.
The two-page proposal, one-page budget, letters from partners, and transcript should be submitted electronically–IN A SINGLE DIGTAL FILE–to Tomás Summers Sandoval at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than JANUARY 30, 2012 at 5:00PM . Letters of recommendation may be sent electronically or in hard copy directly to the Draper Center at Smith Campus Center 228.
Students with queries may direct them to staff at the Draper Center as communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.
