Davis Projects for Peace
January

http://www.davisprojectsforpeace.org/

The Davis Projects for Peace is an invitation to undergraduates at the American colleges and universities in the Davis United World College Scholars Program to design grassroots projects that they will implement during the summer. The projects judged to be the most promising and do-able will be funded at $10,000 each. The objective is to encourage and support today’s motivated youth to create and try out their own ideas for building peace.

We leave it up to the students to define what a “project for peace” might be. We hope 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.

Undergraduate students at any of the Davis UWC Scholar schools (including seniors who would complete their projects after graduation) are eligible – so long as the president of their institution has signed and returned the grant agreement form. While the schools included are restricted to those in the Davis UWC Scholars Program, all undergraduates (not just Davis UWC Scholars at those schools) are eligible. Groups of students from the same campus, as well as individual students, may submit proposals.

To be considered, a student (or group of students) must prepare a written statement which describes the project (who, what, where, how) including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (not to exceed two pages) as well as a budget (one separate page). Proposals should include pre-approval of all involved parties and organizations involved in the project. The two-page proposal and one-page budget should be submitted electronically to the designated official at each campus as outlined below. Students with queries may direct them to their campus designated official as communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.

Each involved campus has a designated official to coordinate the process on each campus. This official, in ways s/he deems appropriate, will guide the internal campus procedures for: announcing and promoting the opportunity to students; organizing the selection committee to evaluate the proposals submitted; communicating results on a timely basis to the Davis UWC Scholars office; and distributing the awarded grant funds for the winning proposal(s) on campus. Final review and approval of all recommended proposals from individual campuses rests solely with the office of the Davis UWC Scholars Program which will then forward the appropriate grant funds to each school with winning project(s).

Global Engagement Summer Institute
March

The Global Engagement Summer Institute is for undergraduates who are passionately committed to global justice and international development. Run by Northwestern University’s Center for Global Engagement and supported abroad by the Foundation for Sustainable Development, the Global Engagement Summer Institute program will bring together students from universities around the country to learn from and work with communities in India, Uganda, Bolivia and Nicaragua experiencing the problems of poverty and injustice.

Going beyond traditional study abroad experiences, the program will place you in a team setting with a host nonprofit organization where you’ll learn about international community development by developing and implementing a real project in areas from youth education to microfinance and beyond.

GESI is a two-course summer study abroad program focused on teaching students about community development in a global context. The program focuses in part on Asset-based Community Development a framework for harnessing the resources of individuals and communities to ensure local ownership and sustainability of development efforts.

GESI recognizes that every individual is instilled with experiences, knowledge, and values that can enrich a team. Students come from various universities and academic programs to work in groups of four to six, a structure that allows them to harness their diversity as well as develop their ability to collaborate and cooperate cross-culturally. GESI has sent nearly 100 students from around the world to work in team based community development in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
