Figures of Speech: Last Week of Classes!

One more week of classes, and then we will all be done (for only two weeks...)! Some of you will be gliding through the last week, having finished all majors assignments; for those of you who are in a slightly more unfortunate position like I am, good luck surviving.

In any case, here are some highlights of cool events this upcoming week.

Davis Projects for Peace Competition
Monday, Dec 14, 5:00 PM – – Other

Princeton undergraduates are invited to participate in the fourth annual Davis Projects for Peace competition, sponsored by philanthropist and internationalist Kathryn Wasserman Davis. A grant of $10,000 will support successful applicants’ projects developed with the aim of building world peace. The competition encourages creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Individual projects can take place anywhere in the world and should focus on achievable, grassroots action.

The competition is open to all undergraduates, including seniors. The application deadline for the summer 2010 competition is Monday, December 14 at 5 pm, EST. Projects to be implemented during the summer of 2010 may be proposed and undertaken by individual students or by a group of students.
