Carolina Sophomore Wins Peace Award

Yu Zhou, a Carolina sophomore, has been named a winner of the 2011 Davis Projects for Peace.

Zhou is the creator of Young Scholars International, a project that helps UNC students studying abroad enrich their international experience by implementing self-designed seminars in local high schools. Young Scholars International will receive $10,000 in funding for project implementation for the summer of 2011.

“Each UNC participant will have an opportunity to facilitate a discussion about an area of knowledge that they have studied and are passionate about with Chinese high school students in Beijing this summer,” Zhou said.
