Luther College has been invited to participate in a unique program called the Davis Projects for Peace, which encourages and supports motivated young people in carrying out their ideas for building peace around the world. The program is made possible by a $1-million gift from Kathryn Wasserman Davis, a lifelong internationalist and philanthropist.
Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for all students at Davis UWC Scholars Program partner schools. The goal is to encourage students to design grassroots projects that promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties. Projects must be designed to be implemented during the summer. Grants are awarded in the amount of $10,000 each for proposals judged to be the most promising and achievable.
