Kathryn Davis, one of the United States’ most well-known philanthropists, passed away at age 106 at her home in Hobe Sound, Florida. Dr. Davis has made an everlasting impact at Brandeis University through her funding of the Davis Peace Projects.

She kept on providing grants for students all over the country since then. This year, Ardak Meterkulova ’13 and Mangaliso Mohammed ’13 were the recipients of the grant, and they will be implementing AIDS projects in Kazakhstan and Swaziland.
