Just got an email about a college scholarship that might apply to some of my readers:

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund has applications available for student activists who are building the progressive movement and will be enrolled in school during the 2005-06 academic year.

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund has applications available for student activists who are building the progressive movement and will be enrolled in school during the 2005-06 academic year…

What is the Davis-Putter Fund? Since 1961, the Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund has provided need-based grants to student activists who are able to do academic work at the college level and are involved in building the movement for social and economic justice.

Who does the Fund support? Davis-Putter grantees are both graduate and undergraduate students who are enrolled in an accredited school for the time period covered by their grant. Although US citizenship is not a consideration, applicants must live in the United States and plan to enroll an accredited program in the US in order to qualify. There is a strong preference for grantees who plan to stay in the United States and build the progressive movement here.

What kind of activities are grantees involved in? 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.

How large are the scholarships the Fund provides? The maximum grant is $6,000 and may be considerably smaller depending on the applicant’s circumstances and the amount of funding available. All of the funds for scholarships come from the contributions of individual donors and we generally make between 25 and 30 grants each year. Grants are for one year although students may re-apply for subsequent years.

Deadline’s April 1, info and applications available at www.davisputter.org.

Good luck.
