Dear Colleagues,

The United Board is pleased to announce that applications are now being
accepted for the 201 MPI Annual Peacebuilding Training that will run from *May
7 to 25, 2018* in Davao City, Philippines.

Committed to whole person education, the United Board supports faculty
development for enhanced teaching, learning, and research. The United Board
provides scholarships for faculty members to participate in this training,
and to encourage the integration of peace education into the curriculum or
extracurricular activities of higher education institutions.

The training is administered by the Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute
Foundation. MPI was established in 2000, as a resource for peacebuilders of
diverse cultures: providing skills, conducting research and building
solidarity within the Asia-Pacific Region.

Successful applicants will be entitled to a scholarship which will include:
tuition, room and board (simple dormitory style accommodation and full
meals) for three weeks, as well as round-trip economy airfare (for
international participants only). United Board staff will contact
successful candidates regarding flight arrangement; and reimbursement of
flight will be made upon submitting the final report, due within one
month after
completion of the program. Please note that visa, ground transportation,
and insurance are not covered and participants shall arrange appropriate
travel medical insurance.
