Announcing the Projects for Peace Alumni Award!

MIDDLEBURY, VT—Middlebury College and Projects for Peace are pleased to announce the launch of the Projects for Peace Alumni Award. Supported by the Kathryn Wasserman Davis Collaborative in Conflict Transformation, the Alumni Award is open to any person previously awarded a Projects for Peace grant. Winners of the Alumni Award will receive up to $50,000 to support their current or proposed peacebuilding and changemaking efforts.

Founded in 2007, Projects for Peace is a global program that encourages young adults to develop innovative, community-centered, and scalable responses to the world’s most pressing issues. Every year, 100 or more student leaders are awarded $10,000 grants each to implement a Project for Peace anywhere in the world, typically over summer break. 

Launched last spring, the Kathryn Wasserman Davis Collaborative in Conflict Transformation seeks to embed principles and practices of conflict transformation in the full continuum of student education. With Middlebury College the new host to the Projects for Peace headquarters, this initiative provides a natural avenue for Projects for Peace to expand its mission of identifying and supporting young peacebuilders. The Alumni Award offers an opportunity to extend that support beyond a student’s college years. 

Alumni interested in the award are encouraged to contact the college or university which sponsored their Project for Peace. Educational institutions which have partnered with Projects for Peace will be invited to nominate one candidate annually.
