ACN Peace Scholars

The purpose of the ACN Peace Scholars program is to enrich students' knowledge of nonviolence, enhance their leadership skills and provide opportunities for peace-related experiences. These students are equipped to make a difference for peace in our world.

Students in the ACN Peace Scholars Program each receive a $1,000 renewable, merit-based scholarship per year. Scholars may be in any major course of study at Ashland University, but are required to pursue a minor in Ethics or Conflict Resolution (only 5 classes). Scholars receive individualized academic advising and VIP engagements with ACN speakers on a variety of topics related to nonviolence.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year, but if you have questions about our program please contact Elizabeth Buttil at The Peace Scholars program will begin taking applications again in the spring, so check back then to fill out an application.
