Call for Projects for Peace

Call for Projects for Peace
Receive a $ 10.000 grant to do your Project for Peace as JGU-student!

Have an idea for how to help your community? Are you ready to take action around a social issue you feel passionate about? Interested in peace-building and conflict-resolution? If any of these things are true, you might be interested to learn more about Projects for Peace.

Projects for Peace is a global program by Middlebury College that encourages young adults to develop innovative, community-centered, and scalable responses to the world’s most pressing issues. The program provides selected students with $10,000 grants to carry out their projects over the summer. In 2024, the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is partner of the initiative, see: Summer Grants | Middlebury

In this context, we are looking for students and student groups from the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz that seek to develop and implement such Projects of Peace and receive a $ 10.000 grant!
We are looking for any projects that seek to address conflict, conflict transformation, conflict resolution, peacebuilding or any other issues related to conflict in broad sense and across academic disciplines. This especially applies to projects that work with local community in Mainz and the region or seek to address specific communities elsewhere. Overall, the call for projects is very open and flexible to any ideas and projects. For a list of past projects see: Project Archive | Middlebury
