Caux Scholars Alumni

Welcome to the Alumni page, which we plan to develop as a resource and support source for our graduates, responding to the need expressed in Caux during the 2008 Reunion.

2014 Caux Scholar Reunion 

A Caux Scholar reunion drew 24 alumni from 11 different classes and 19 countries back to Caux. Sessions for them to get to know the 2014 cohort of scholars elicited an engaging buzz.

news report written by Lamiya Adilgizi (CSP 2013) from Azerbaijan is available on line.

A report from the reunion is published online


If you want to be in touch with Caux Scholars but you need contact information, or you are going to a new part of the world and want to know what other CSP grads are there, or have an interest and want to find others who share it, email Jitka Hromek-Vaitla.

CSP Alumni Scholarship

At the CSP reunion held in Caux in 2008, an alumni focus group agreed on the need for a greater number of participants from countries directly affected by conflict. Our hope is that the recipient of the CSP Alumni Scholarship will return to his/ her home country, after benefiting from training in conflict transformation and peacebuilding, and act as a seed for peace by contributing directly to the peace process. All alumni are asked to donate and fundraise for this scholarship. For more information ...


The Caux Scholars Program welcomes applications from former scholars to be Assistants with the Program. Those interested in applying should send a letter of intent, indicating why they would like to be an Assistant, including what they would hope to gain from the experience of working with Caux Scholars and returning to Caux and what they believe they can contribute.
