Kathryn Davis Fellows for Peace
The Davis Fellows for Peace awards aim to fulfill the intention of the late philanthropist Kathryn Wasserman Davis. As development of intercultural understanding is essential to reducing conflict, the study of languages has become increasingly important. Mrs. Davis challenged us to "bring about a mindset of preparing for peace instead of preparing for war."
The 100 annual fellowships are intended for exceptionally qualified individuals with demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas: international, global, or area studies; international politics and economics; peace and security studies; and / or conflict resolution. The Fellows for Peace awards cover tuition, room, and board for one summer in any of the 11 language schools at Middlebury at any level of study. The fellowships are highly competitive, merit-based awards available to all applications.
