Premer Award

Thanks to the generosity of Glenna Premer, a 2004 certificate recipient, the Premer Award provides up to $1,000 to individuals who design creative conflict resolution internships. You must submit to KIPCOR a typed description of your internship design and how you would use the award funds. Off-site internships are especially encouraged.
