100 Projects for Peace
September 18, 2016
Davis 100 Projects for Peace is an initiative for all students at the Davis United World College Scholars Program partner schools, including Lewis & Clark College, to design their own grassroots projects for peace that they themselves will implement anywhere in the world during the summer of 2017. Through a competition on over 90 campuses, projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.
Davis 100 Projects for Peace is being funded by Kathryn W. Davis, a lifelong internationalist and philanthropist who is now over 102 years old. She is the mother of Shelby M.C. Davis who funds the Davis UWC Scholars Program currently involving over 90 American colleges and universities. Mrs. Davis feels some urgency to spark initiatives for building prospects for peace in the world and so is committing $1 million to fund one hundred $10,000 projects for peace. She believes that today’s youth – tomorrow’s leaders – ought to be challenged to formulate and test their own ideas.
Students with queries may direct them to Associate Dean Brian White of the Office of International Students and Scholars as communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.
