Apply for peace studies scholarship

The universal scholarship application deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 19! The AAO and the Center for Peace and Justice encourage students who are interested in peace studies or social justice to complete the Steinfeldt Peace Studies Scholarship application.

The Steinfeldt Peace Studies Scholarship goes to George Fox upperclass undergraduate students each year who demonstrate a commitment to peace studies with a clear peacemaking vocation. There are a maximum of four awards available, which range from $2,000 to $4,000.

Students can apply for the 2020-21 Steinfeldt Peace Studies Scholarship through the scholarship manager on their account.  Under “Student Resources” click on “Newberg UG Scholarships.” The scholarship manager closes at 5 p.m. in Wednesday, Feb. 19.

Students are to submit a personal statement essay (150 to 600 words) that describes themselves and how George Fox is helping them fulfill their career plans, as well as a Steinfeldt Peace Studies Scholarship essay (300 to 1,200 words).

Applicants are also to include a research idea or project to promote peace and justice that could be completed during the scholarship year. Awardees will present results of their project to a campus forum at the end of year and are required to select and work with a mentor on the required project and to meet with mentors and participate in sponsored events.

Faculty, please encourage students to apply!
