Davis Projects for Peace $10K Award
On the occasion of her 100th birthday, Mrs. Kathryn Davis, an international philanthropist alumna of I-House New York, who died in 2013 at age 106, felt some urgency to spark initiatives for building prospects for peace in the world. She committed $1 million to fund one hundred $10,000 projects for peace as she believed that today’s youth – tomorrow’s leaders – ought to be challenged to formulate and test their own ideas.
Davis Projects for Peace challenges applicants to design innovative
grassroots projects anywhere in the world for the summer of 2017.
The winning projects will be awarded $10,000 and must focus on conflict resolution, building understanding and maintaining peace.
