Emeritus professors of history Joseph L. Grabill and Gerlof D. Homan had overlapping careers at ISU. In the late-1970s, in the midst of the Cold War, they both began to focus their research and efforts on peace studies. The interdisciplinary Peace Studies program at ISU arose out of the inner transformation among these two professors and like-minded colleagues.
Each candidate for a Grabill-Homan Peace Prize must be or have:
Enrolled in good standing at Illinois State University
A Peace and Conflict Resolution minor with a minimum of 30 hours of college credit
Committed to using these scholarship funds for educational expenses
Demonstrated involvement with campus and community peacemaking activities
A single scholarship award will be deposited in the recipient’s Illinois State University account at the beginning of the fall semester to help cover educational expenses. The amount of the award will be based on the earned income from the principal of the fund (estimated $500).
Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are due in the College Office (Stevenson 141) by 4:00 p.m. on February 25, 2018.
