Enough Project’s Student Upstander Program

Enough Project’s Student Upstander Program

The Enough Project’s Student Upstander program is designed to develop a network of committed student activists on campuses across the country to draw on the power of student leadership to support peace in East and Central Africa.

As an Enough Student Upstander, you will have a variety of campaigns and issues to work on throughout the year in order to gain experience in this field, execute a plan tailored to your campus, and take action to support peace in East and Central Africa. Student Upstanders learn from policy experts on topics like the political economy of conflict, the nature of violent kleptocracies, the nexus of conflict and corruption, and how illicit financial flows fund violence and instability.

Students are provided with the tools to learn about and lead activities such as:

  • Passing a conflict-free resolution on your campus or in your city as part of the Conflict-Free Campus Initiative (CFCI)
  • Hosting screenings of films provided by the Enough Project
  • Building an on-campus network of students and faculty
  • Participating in virtual educational sessions with policy experts
  • Organizing trainings
  • Influencing legislative work and forming relationships with congressional offices
  • Attending the Lemkin Summit to End Genocide and Mass Atrocities, in Washington D.C.

Student Expectations

  • On average, up to 5 hours per week during the school year for regular activities
  • 1 hour per month for monthly training calls
  • 90 minutes per semester for progress updates


Each Student Upstander is issued a $500 annual stipend and has access to funding for events and travel.
