Projects for Peace - Call for Proposals (due Jan. 25, 2012)

2012 DAVIS PROJECTS FOR PEACE STUDENT GRANT COMPETITION

Do you have a vision for peace? What could you do with $10,000 to make that vision a reality?

AN INVITATION TO APPLY: St. Lawrence students are invited to submit proposals to the 2012 Davis Projects for Peace (PfP) Program, which provides $10,000 grants for “grassroots” projects to promote peace and address the root causes of conflict. These projects must be implemented and completed during the summer of 2012 and can take place in the U.S. or any location around the world—anywhere your idea to promote peace can make a difference. All current SLU students, including seniors, are eligible to apply.

HOW TO APPLY: Proposals are due electronically to Carol Smith in the Campus Grants Office by Wednesday, January 25th, 2012, and should consist of two pages of text outlining the project (need, goals, activities, timeline, and expected outcomes). A one-page budget is also required.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact a member of the faculty-staff Projects for Peace Committee to discuss their projects before the winter break.

PROPOSAL SELECTION: The Committee will review proposals immediately following the winter break and select one to two projects to submit to the Davis PfP Program. Awards will be announced during the spring semester.

FOR MORE INFORMATION: Visit the Davis PfP website for more details on developing proposals. Committee members are also available to answer questions.
