Application Deadline: April 1, 2017
The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides need-based grants to students who are able to do academic work at the college level or are enrolled in a trade or technical program and are actively working for peace and justice. Davis-Putter scholars are both graduate and undergraduate students and must be living in the U. S. and planning to enroll in an accredited school. Grantees must receive academic credits for the time period covered by their grant. Early recipients fought for civil rights, against McCarthyism, and for peace in Vietnam. More recently, 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 solidarity.
The maximum grant is $10,000 but awards may be considerably smaller depending on the applicant’s circumstances and the amount of money available. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply. However, applicants must have participated in activities in the United States, and there is a strong preference for applicants who plan on remaining in the United States.
