Projects For Peace
As a member of the International Houses WorldWide Organisation, ISH residents are able to participate in the Davis Projects for Peace initiative: where students are selected to be awarded $10,000 to undertake a summer project that contributes to peace in the world.
In recent years, ISH residents have received 1-2 awards per year. Proposals must be submitted via the Dean of Student Life to I-House New York in January in the year that the summer project will be conducted, with successful bids announced in March / April and final reports to be submitted in early September. A Davis Peace Project is a great opportunity to develop your transferable skills and do some good in the world and is something unique that most other residences in the UK cannot offer.
