The Karpf Peace Awards and Hahn Peace Awards are given annually to people who wish to work toward coexistence and peaceful ways of addressing and resolving conflicts of many sorts. The awards are meant to enhance peace culture as it evolves in our society and elsewhere in the world.
Brandeis undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply for the awards. Under usual circumstances, no more than one award per year will be given to a graduate student. Applications are welcome from all undergraduates and graduate students; applicants do not need to be enrolled in the Peace, Conflict and Coexistence Studies Program.
Each year the Karpf fund awards $3,500 to students, while the Hahn fund awards $4,000. Students apply for these awards jointly. Typically, award amounts vary from $300 - $5,000. Some projects are funded completely and others partially.
The Davis Projects for Peace initiative encourages students to design grassroots projects for peace that they themselves will implement anywhere in the world during the summer after the award is granted. Students of Davis United World College Scholars Program partner institutions - including Brandeis - are eligible for the $10,000 grants.
