Are you a Wesleyan student? Do you care about social justice, human rights, environmental sustainability, education, healthcare, international development, poverty alleviation, or another local or global problem?

If so, you should consider applying for a Davis Projects for Peace grant or a Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship Seed Grant.

What kinds of projects are eligible?

The Davis grant funds projects that will be implemented during Summer 2016. The Seed Grant funds projects or ventures that are already underway or expect to launch by December 2016 and continue indefinitely. Both value strong leadership and careful planning. Both can be independent (entrepreneurship) or housed within an existing organization (intrapreneurship). You can read more about each prize and the previous winners from Wesleyan here

Stop by Allbritton 022 between noon and 1pm on 12/15, 12/16, or 12/17 to meet with Makaela. You can brainstorm ideas, get help or edits on your application, or learn more about the decision process. Come for the whole hour or ten minutes!
