Each year, the Davis-Putter Fund awards scholarships (up to $10,000 each) to undergraduate and graduate students who are active in movements for social justice. The Fund considers the applicant’s contribution to social justice, ability to perform academically, and relevance of educational program, as well as their financial need. This scholarship opportunity is open to undocumented students. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, but applicants must have participated in activities in the United States and be planning to enroll in an accredited program in the U.S. in order to apply.
To apply, you need to submit the following:
- Complete application form (original and two copies)
- Personal statement (original and two copies)
- Two signed letters of recommendation (original and two copies)
- Transcripts from all previous academic work (original and two copies)
- Photograph (one original)
- Copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) or a copy of the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) (three copies)
- Applicants who are not eligible for US federal financial aid should completely fill out a FAFSA worksheet and attach it to the application. Applications which do not include a copy of the SAR, or a completed FAFSA if not eligible for US federal aid, will not be considered.
The deadline to apply is April 1, 2016
