Davis Projects for Peace

One hundred project proposals are chosen by the Davis United World College Scholars Program each year to receive a $10,000 grant. It is left up to the student to define what a "project for peace" might be.  Projects must take place during the summer and can be based anywhere in the world, including in the United States.
