Each year Hands of Peace supports alumni who need financial assistance to complete their college or university education with scholarships. One scholarship will be awarded to an alumnus/na from each delegation. These scholarships are created through the generosity of donors.

Hands of Peace also annually recognizes an alumnus/na with the Rooftop Consciousness Award to someone who demonstrates through their work and volunteerism that, despite our many differences, we are all connected as one human family. Hands of Peace staff, alumni, volunteers and alumni family members can nominate.

Nominations and applications for both are now closed. Scholarship and Award recipients will be announced in late July 2021.
