  • Scholarship Description
  • The Davis-Putter scholarship fund provides need-based grants to student activists able to do academic work at the college level and involved in building the movement for social and economic justice.

    Grantees are both graduate and undergraduate students who are 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. Citizenship is not a requirement, but applicants must be living in and planning on attending college in the U.S. in order to be considered. Activism is the most important requirement for a successful application. No application will be seriously considered without it.

    Students who have completed their undergraduate degrees or are in joint degree programs or are in advanced education programs and who are working for a masters, doctorate, or professional degree (medicine, law, architecture, journalism, etc.) are eligible to receive a scholarship from the fund.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
