Projects for Peace Info Session Wednesday, Oct. 23, 5 p.m., International Center Commons

The United World College’s 100 Projects for Peace is a competition for students to design grassroots “projects for peace.” The competition is open to all UR undergraduate students, and the proposed project can be undertaken as an individual or a group. The project can be done anywhere in the world including the U.S. and should have a long-term impact. The definition of a project for peace is flexible to encourage creativity and innovation.  Winning proposals will be funded at $10,000 each and implemented in summer 2014. The campus submission deadline is January 27, 2014. For more information, visit
