Young people bring talent, determination, and ingenuity to addressing some of the most pressing challenges to achieving peace. Like other skills, peacemaking requires practice to develop.
Marquette undergraduate and graduate students can apply for up to $2,500 to deepen their understanding of nonviolence and social change by engaging in local or global peacemaking efforts. Funding is for summer projects.
We encourage students to use their creativity when designing a fellowship project. While all projects are required to advance nonviolent peacemaking, we recognize that peacemaking is an interdisciplinary field that allows for broad application.
Please complete the online form to apply. Applications are due February 20, 2023.
Note: Please contact Chris Jeske if you encounter any technical issues.
