Here are all the details and qualification requirements for this scholarship:
The Scott Davis Educational Scholarship is open to anyone who will be enrolled in a college, graduate school, trade school, workforce-development program, certificate program, or similar organization or program during the summer or fall of 2019.
All are encouraged to apply, including those who do not have citizenship or residency status.
There is no restriction or discrimination made on the basis of age, gender identity, ethnic identity, citizenship status, residency, mental, physical, developmental, or other disability, or any like identifiers. However, cognizant of how the aforesaid identifiers may influence a person’s position in the world, Scott may consider them if they are voluntarily shared.
To maintain the integrity of the scholarship and prevent conflicts, the only people who cannot apply are Scott’s relatives and law students attending CUNY School of Law — where Scott studies law.
