Application Deadline: November 1, 2012

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Institute of International Education (IIE) are pleased to announce today that they are launching the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education for Peacebuilding Support Program.

USIP is an independent, nonpartisan institution established and funded by Congress to increase the nation’s capacity to manage international conflict without violence. By supporting events across the country that cover a wide range of peace and conflict mitigation topics, USIP aims to contribute in a significant way to the national conversation on addressing and preventing international conflict.

Over the next year, this initiative will provide $2,000 each to 250 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 its resolution, and be held during the spring 2013 academic semester. The application deadline is November 1, 2012, and recipients will be announced in December 2012.
