Healthcare Scholarship: Davis – Putter Scholarship Fund

Overview of the Davis-Putter Scholarship

The Davis-Putter Scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate a commitment to civil rights, economic justice, international solidarity or other progressive issues. Applicants must demonstrate a passion for the above-mentioned causes, exceptional academic performance and financial need.

All applicants must be currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies at an accredited institution. They must receive college credits throughout the time period that is covered by the scholarship grant. You must also live in the United States and currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a United States school. Strong preference is given to individuals who demonstrate an interest in continuing to work towards social change issues within the United States in the future.

To apply, you must submit a short personal statement, a current university transcript, two letters of support, an official financial statement and a passport-sized photo of yourself, suitable for reproduction. All applications must be submitted by postal mail and postmarked by April 1st, as of 2014. Since deadlines may change from one year to the next, it is advisable to consult the Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund website for up-to-date criteria.

Within your application, the letters of support should come from two people who can accurately evaluate your current political work. However, there is no explicit limitation on their specific relationship to you; you may opt to provide letters from relevant professors or academic advisors, or from community leaders and activists with whom you have worked or volunteer on relevant social work causes.

The scholarship may be up to $10,000, depending on the particular financial and academic circumstances of the applicant, and depending on the amount of funding available. The funding is to cover living and educational expenses.

A winning application will provide evidence, above all else, of the applicant’s active role in social justice efforts. Academic merit is also considered, but to a lesser degree. In addition, the scholarship is need-based, meaning that only those applicants who can demonstrate financial need will be considered for the award. Current high school students taking advanced placement courses are typically ineligible for the award, but are encouraged to apply once they have enrolled at an institution of higher learning, full-time. Individuals who are awaiting acceptance into a university or college may submit an application, indicating as much. If you are considered as a finalist, you may be awarded the scholarship, pending your acceptance into the university in question.
