Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund

Application deadline:   April 1, 2016

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund aids people active in movements for social and economic justice. These need-based scholarships are awarded to students who are able to do academic work at the college or university level or are enrolled in a trade or technical program and who are active in the progressive movement. Early recipients worked for civil rights, against McCarthyism and for peace in Vietnam. Recent grantees have been active in the struggle against racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of oppression; building the movement for economic justice; and creating peace through international anti-imperialist solidarity.

Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply. However, applicants must have participated in activities in the US, and there is a strong preference for applicants who plan on working in this country.

The maximum grant available from the Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund is $10,000 per year (from July 1 through June 30). The scholarships are for normal educational and living expenses. The Fund is not a source to fund research or fieldwork.
