Penn Deadline: January 18, 2022

 

Penn’s Application Process

The Davis Projects for Peace program accepts nominations from institutions – students may not apply independently. To apply to be one of Penn’s nominees, you must complete the following steps by Penn’s Internal Deadline of January 18, 2022.

  • To apply, a student (or group of students) must prepare a written statement (not to exceed two pages) that describes the project (who, what, where, how), as well as a budget (one separate page - a Budget Template and Instructions are available here).  You will find numerous examples of funded proposals on the Davis Projects for Peace website here. Proposals require a heading which includes the following information: name of the participating institution (University of Pennsylvania), name of all student participants, title of project, dates of the project, country where the project will be performed.
  • Complete Penn’s Request for Nomination application form.  Here, you will upload a single PDF which combines your written statement and budget (save each document as a pdf, then create a single pdf by navigating to Acrobat's "File -> Create -> Combine Files into a Single PDF” feature).  If you do not receive an email confirming your submission within 4 hours, please IMMEDIATELY email aolson@upenn.edu to make sure CURF has received your submission.
  • Additionally, each application must be supported by two letters - one letter of support from a Penn mentor (faculty or staff), and one letter of support from a proposed project affiliate in the host community. Once you have arranged for these letters, fill out a CURF Recommendation Request Form for each so that they can be submitted directly to CURF. These letters must also be received by Penn's Deadline of January 18, 2022.
    • The letter of support from a Penn mentor (faculty or staff) should discuss the proposed project's feasibility and the adequacy of the applicant's/applicants' preparation to complete it. It should also outline ways in which the applicant (or team of applicants) would be mentored over the course of the project and beyond.
    • The letter of support from a proposed project affiliate in the host community should acknowledge that you have been in contact with local partners, that your project is welcome, and that you will have access to necessary support while on location. 
  • Nominated students will receive further instructions.  

 

Luce Scholars (Tentative deadline)

Deadline: October 9 2022

Luce Scholars

In spite of its name, the Luce Scholars Program is experiential rather than academic in nature. At the heart of the enterprise are the internships that are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of his or her specific professional interests, background, qualifications, and experience. Placements can be made in the following countries: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam

Aimed at a very select group of young Americans from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, the Luce Scholars Program is unique in placing emphasis on leaders who have had limited (or no) prior exposure to the region.  A monthly stipend and certain other allowances are provided by the Luce Foundation.
