Davis-Putter Scholarships

Posted by on January 31, 2003

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund has applications available for student activists who are building the progressive movement and will be enrolled in school during the 2003-04 academic year. Davis-Putter grantees are both graduate and undergraduate students who are enrolled in an accredited school for the time period covered by their grant. Although US citizenship is not a consideration, applicants must live in the United States and plan to enroll an accredited program in the US in order to qualify. There is a strong preference for grantees who plan to stay in the United States and build the progressive movement here.

The maximum grant is $6,000 and may be considerably smaller depending on the applicant’s circumstances and the amount of funding available. All of the funds for scholarships come from the contributions of individual donors and we generally make between 25 and 30 grants each year. Grants are for one year although students may re-apply for subsequent years.

Applications and the supporting documents — transcripts, a personal statement, two letters of recommendation, a photograph, financial aid reports — must be postmarked by April 1. Decisions will be announced in July. Send a self-addressed stamped #10 envelope to the address listed below. Requests for applications must be received by Friday, March 21, 2003 at the latest and should not be sent by carriers requiring a signature. These are the instructions for the 2003-04 academic year only. If you are interested in applying in a subsequent year, please contact us for details then.
