How to Apply

To apply, complete the online Summer Travel Award Application & Budget Qualtrics form (above). As you prepare to complete items in the form, it is recommended that you preview a pdf of the entire application so that you know what information you may want to prepare in advance.  Note that not all questions you see in the pdf preview will be visible to you in the Qualtrics form, but viewing the items in advance may help you better prepare your proposal and your budget.

Each applicant must also submit one Faculty Recommendation from a current F&M faculty member by the application deadline. The link to the Qualtrics form is below. It is your responsibility to send this link to your faculty recommender.

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.
