Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution 35 For 35 Campaign

As we celebrate the 35th anniversary of our founding, we are proud that the Straus Institute has improved the culture of conflict on a global scale. Talented students from every corner of the globe apply to our institute, and while we offer limited scholarships, the significant cost of attendance continues to pose barriers for too many.

The recent $1 million gift from the Honorable Danny Weinstein (Ret.) expands access to a Straus education for students from diverse backgrounds. We invite you to amplify the impact of Judge Weinstein's gift by becoming a 35 for 35 Legacy Partner. Your generous support of student scholarships will ensure that our institute’s legacy extends far beyond Southern California and reaches individuals and communities across the world.

Testimonials

Katerina Karamousalidou

I would like to be one of the reasons why 10 years from now, 50 years from now, people will be able to resolve their conflicts amicably and focus on dialogue. Peacmaking is what I would like to promote. I would like to thank scholarship donors because you enable me to follow my dreams.

There was no hope my dream of being an arbitrator or taking this course until I received that email saying that you have 50% scholarship. I want to thank [the donors] so much because they have transformed lives.
