Ashland Center for Nonviolence
Peace Scholars Program
College Students Making a Difference
The purpose of the ACN Peace Scholars Program is to enrich a student’s knowledge of nonviolence, skill for leadership, and opportunities for peace-related experiences. Whether they are in or out of the classroom, scholars will be equipped to make a difference for peace in our world.
Students in the ACN Peace Scholars Program 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 (only 5 classes). In their first year at AU, scholars live and learn together as a cohort. In all years, scholars receive individualized academic advising and VIP engagements with ACN speakers on a variety of topics related to nonviolence.
