Attention Student Activists!
The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund <http://www.davisputter.org/>
has applications available for student activists who are
building the progressive movement and will be enrolled
in school during the 2007-08 academic year.  Our website
provides answers to questions about the Fund, the
application process, and the students we support.  If
you know of students working for peace and justice, or
if you have a list of activist contacts, please send
this announcement along and refer potential applicants
to the Fund's website:  www.davisputter.org.

Since 1961 the Davis-Putter Fund has provided need-based
grants to students who are able to do academic work at
the college level and are involved in building movements
for social and economic justice. Grantees are both
graduates and undergraduates enrolled in accredited
schools for the period covered by their grant.  Although
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

The maximum grant is $8,000 and may be considerably
smaller depending on the applicant's circumstances and
the funding available.  All the funds come from
individual donors and there are 25-30 grants awarded
each year.  Grants are for one year although students
may re-apply for subsequent years.

Applications and the supporting documents --
transcripts, a personal statement, two letters of
recommendation, a photograph, financial aid reports --
must be postmarked by April 1.  Final decisions are not
announced until July.
