Through fundraising efforts, CSP offers merit-based and need-based scholarships that are given to scholars who have made important community contributions and who demonstrate leadership skills and a clear commitment to furthering the mission and values of CSP and Initiatives of Change in their chosen professional field.
CSP asks all applicants to be prepared to contribute towards the cost of their participation in the program if they are selected. Typically this comes in the form of scholars covering round-trip airfare to the Program. In the past, some scholars have asked their employers to subsidize their travel to Caux based on the benefits that the training will contribute towards their professional and organizational advancement. They may also choose to fundraise for these costs after selection decisions are issued in February 2017.
1. National of a country that is affected by civil or armed conflict. Please note that candidates with nationality (dual nationality) or permanent residency in a developed country do not qualify for the scholarship.
2. Active engagement in creating peace and mitigating conflict.
3. Demonstrated financial need.
In addition to the CSP application, please submit a one-page essay on the following topic:
How are you currently engaged in creating peace in your country? What, in your opinion, are the qualities needed in peacemakers who seek to break the cycle of hatred and resentment and unite people across barriers that have historically divided them? (You may wish to refer to the IofC website; its history and stories of individuals who have helped heal conflicts in their countries for ideas)
As part of their academic course the CSP class of 2017 will participate in the Just Governance for Human Security conference, one in the series of Caux summer conferences.
