The Center on Conflict and Development opened the new Student Media Grants Program (SMGP) application! This grant is funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University.
ConDev’s Student Media Grant Program awards funds to current students or recent graduates from accredited universities worldwide interested in conducting field work in conflict-affected areas of the world. Grantees can work on a variety of research or extension programs that will allow them to chronicle critical issues being faced by communities, such as:
- Peace and reconciliation
- Poverty and food insecurity
- Forms of violence (gender, school, domestic, political, etc)
- Migration/refugee crisis
This grant was inspired by Howard G. Buffett’s use of photography to document the nexus of conflict and development in “Fragile: The Human Condition.” This grant is funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University.
