Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund

Website: Davis-Putter


 The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides need-based grants to student activists who are able to do academic work at the college level and are actively working for peace and justice. Davis-Putter scholars are both graduate and undergraduate students and must be enrolled in an accredited school for the time period covered by their grant. Although citizenship is not a consideration, applicants must be living in the United States and planning to enroll in an accredited program in the US in order to apply. There is a preference for grantees who are planning on staying in the United States and building the progressive movement here.

  • Graduate or undergraduate students who are enrolled in an accredited school or the time period covered by the grant
  • Must live in the United States and plan to enroll in an accredited program in the U.S.
  • Strong preference for grantees who plan to stay in the U.S. and build the progressive movement here
  • Early recipients fought for civil rights, against McCarthyism, and for peace in Vietnam. More recently, 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.
