Are you a Pomona College junior interested in pursuing a life of public service and social change? Do you have a bold or creative idea you would like to implement now?

The Strauss Foundation Public Service scholar­ships are awarded to eligible juniors for high-impact, public-service projects undertaken in their senior year. The award of $10,000 helps with the implementation of the project as the student gains valuable experience and development for a life in service to the wider public.

Pomona College and the Draper Center are honored to be involved with the Strauss Foundation in identifying students for this prestigious award. The deadline for applications is FEBRUARY 14, 2016 at 5:00PM.

The Donald A. Strauss Public Service Scholarship Foundation was created as a memorial to the late Don Strauss, who demonstrated a strong, lifelong commitment to public service and education. The Foundation annually awards $10,000 scholarships to no fewer than 14 California college juniors who reflect a similar commitment.

Successful applicants for this round will be current juniors at Pomona College who plan to execute the project during their senior year. Additional eligibility guidelines and information as well as application materials, can be found on the Strauss Foundation website.

Please submit completed applications electronically to Maria R. Tucker. A single file PDF is best, if possible.  The Pomona College deadline for Strauss applications is FEBRUARY 14, 2016 at 5:00PM.
