Caux Scholar Program

Caux Scholar Program

Since it began in 1991, the Caux Scholars Program (CSP) has graduated close to 500 students from more than 100 countries. Berea College students, with interest and experience in peace and justice issues, are invited to apply to be a Caux Scholar. Berea College has had at least one student become a Caux scholar each year since 2011, detailed below.

Twenty students from around the world are selected for this four-week course held in Caux, Switzerland, during the Initiatives of Change global summer conferences. The program includes approximately 40 hours of academic classes, seven hours per week of “Service for Leadership” practical work, a field trip to Geneva and participation in the Caux conferences.

The Caux Scholars Program teaches students to analyze a conflict, to understand the factors that create and sustain conflicts, and provide practical understanding of approaches to resolving conflicts – conflict prevention, negotiation and transitional justice.
