Davenport Study Grants support student research and other student scholarly projects in public affairs. Grants are awarded to sophomores and juniors who have “demonstrated intellectual and moral excellence and a concern for public affairs” and “who by their personal qualities and vocational and scholarly intentions give greatest promise of leadership in the public service.”
Please see the Davenport website for application information.
All Davenport Scholars will receive between $500 and $3000 depending on the scope of their project, that can be used beginning this summer. Please note that a separately submitted letter from the faculty member who will supervise the project, carefully assessing its merit and the ability of the applicant to carry it out successfully, must be submitted with the application.
