Applications Invited for United States Institute of Peace Public Education for Peacebuilding Support Program
The United States Institute of Peace and the Institute of International Education have announced the launch of the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education for Peacebuilding Support Program. Through the program, which is administered by IIE, USIP will provide support to American colleges, universities, and public libraries enabling them to hold events designed to advance and promote the understanding of peacebuilding and international conflict resolution.
Over the next year, the initiative will provide grants of $2,000 to two hundred and fifty U.S. institutions and public libraries. Funding may be used for a variety of activities, including educational or training workshops, lectures, speaker programs, library forums, or Web-based forums. The activity must address issues of international conflict and their resolution and be held during the spring 2013 academic semester.
All accredited U.S. colleges and universities, as well as public libraries are eligible to apply. Groups or organizations such as academic departments, academic clubs, and consortia within either entity are also eligible. University student-led groups may submit an application with the endorsement of a faculty member or administrator. Non-U.S. higher education institutions and public libraries are not eligible.
The first application cycle is currently open with a due date of November 1, 2012.
The full program announcement and application procedures are available at the IIE Web site.
