Fellowships for Peace

In 2007, in celebration of her 100th birthday, Kathryn Wasserman Davis made a transformative gift of $1 million to establish the Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace at Middlebury College and the Monterey Institute for International Studies.

The fellowships supported a summer of language study for 100 students and professionals committed to learning a critical language—Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, or Portuguese—and to using their language skills to advance intercultural communication, understanding, and cooperation.
