    Summary

    The American Montessori Society Peace Committee awards annual Peace Seed Grants to help fund projects that promote peace education.


    The grants are presented in memory of educator Ursula Thrush, whose dedication to the concept of peace through children inspired many to advance peace education in their classrooms and communities. Among her numerous achievements, Ursula founded the Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco and helped establish The Science of Peace Task Force and the Montessori Peace Academy. Peace Seed Grants are financed through donations to the AMS Peace Fund.
