Since 2007, Kathryn Wasserman Davis, an accomplished internationalist and philanthropist, has sponsored an invitation to undergraduates at the American colleges and universities in the Davis United World College Scholars Program to design grassroots projects that they will implement during the summer. The projects judged to be the most promising and feasible will be funded at $10,000 each. The objective is to encourage and support today's motivated youth to create and try out their own ideas for building peace on the ground.
Groups of students from Bryn Mawr as well as individual students may submit proposals. Groups comprised of students from Bryn Mawr and Haverford will be eligible for consideration.
Travel Warnings & Embargos:
A funded project may not take place in a country on either the U.S. State Department "warning" or Treasury "embargo" lists (except when an embargo is specifically directed toward a narrow set of individuals or circumstances in a country.) Travel warnings can be accessed at: www.travel.state.gov.
This award is treated as a Fellowship. Please see the Payment Procedures page for more information.
Students with specific queries may direct them to Isabelle Barker as communication between students writing proposals and the Davis UWC Scholars office is prohibited.
