Apply for Funding to Work for Peace
To the Editors:
Students at Oberlin are eligible for this opportunity because Oberlin College is one of over 80 colleges and universities recognized nationally as a Davis United World College Program school. Individual students or groups of students on the UWC campuses are invited to design their own grassroots project for peace to be implemented anywhere in the world during the summer of 2008.
Intentionally, no definition of a “project for peace” is offered, so as not to limit the realm of possible projects. You are challenged to formulate and test your own ideas to define what a “project for peace” might be. The overall program is designed to be worldwide in scope and impact, but projects may be undertaken anywhere.
Students interested in applying for these funds should contact Susan Morse in the Office of Sponsored Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 440-775-8461 for information about how to apply. The application deadline is January 11, 2008. Oberlin will nominate one primary proposal and up to two alternate proposals for final selection by the UWC Program.
This is a great opportunity for Oberlin students to do what they do best: use their creativity and critical thinking skills to solve real world problems. We look forward to reading your proposals.
