Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides grants of up to $8,000 to graduate or undergraduate students actively working for peace and justice on campus and/or in the community. These need-based scholarships are awarded to those able to do academic work at the university level and who are part of the progressive movement on the campus and in the community. 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. Applications are due April 1 of each year.
