Scholarships and Awards
Each school year we are proud to offer opportunities for students to win financial support from our Institute. This year we have four opportunities: The Philip Jacob Peace Memorial Award and the Betty Jacob Peace Fund Award, both offered to undergraduate and graduate, the Nobumoto Tanahashi Peace Scholarship Award for undergraduate students, and the Nobumoto Tanahashi Peace Fellowship for graduate Students.
All awards require an explanation of efforts in the world of peace and conflict resolution. Please take the application process seriously. We look forward to receiving and evaluating your submissions.
Spring 2013 Philip Jacob Peace Memorial Award
This award is established in memory of Professor Philip E. Jacob (1914-1985), who devoted his personal and academic life to the search for peace and inter-cultural understanding.
Dr. Jacob was convinced that war and the preservation of human values are incompatible with each other. He tried through scholarship, teaching, and public service to strengthen bonds of international cooperation and the processes of peacemaking. In pioneering a new diplomacy of cross-national collaborative research with fellow scientists from East, West, North, and South, he succeeded in joining minds and resources across barriers of ideology and politics in a common exploration of how to better the human condition.
