The Deaton Scholars Program provides opportunity for students to gain interdisciplinary perspectives on fighting hunger and poverty at home and abroad. The Program is dedicated to a peer mentoring learning process that incorporates experiential learning in domestic and international environments. Project DevelopmentStudent initiated projects are developed in the peer mentoring process and carried out over a two semester sequence that can include intensive learning experiences as interns and dedicated service learning.Our goal is to provide seed money to invest in 20 projects annually chosen as the most prominent from those projects that are developed each semester.Travel OpportunitiesFunds are needed to insure each class of students the opportunity to participate in high quality conferences where they can stay abreast of the latest thinking that is shaping national and international policies and programs, and develop new approaches through working together across disciplines. Our goal is to allow students the opportunity to attend the World Food Prize, the Annual Summit of Universities Fighting World Hunger, and the Chicago Council Annual Conference.
