Building Robust & Inclusive Democracy

Projects for Peace

Projects for Peace is a global program that partners with educational institutions to identify and support young peacebuilders. Each year, the program grants $1.25 million to student leaders who are developing innovative, community-centered, and scalable responses to the world’s most pressing issues. Every year, 125 or more student leaders are each awarded $10,000 grants to implement a Project for Peace, typically between May and August. Along the way, these student leaders increase their knowledge, improve their skills, and begin to see themselves as agents of change. Tufts will nominate two projects for consideration of a 10,000 prize. The application process begins each November and proposals must be submitted by early January.
