The Donald A. Strauss Scholarship allows full-time college juniors to pursue a public service project during their senior year by providing $10,000 for educational expenses. The project may be a new undertaking or an extension of the recipient's current activities. The Strauss Foundation will award at least sixteen scholarships in 2012 that can be used to pay for tuition, fees, books, room and board, and at the recipient's option, for some of the costs of the public service project.

Applicants must be in the upper third of their class (typically a minimum 3.3 GPA) and plan to devote a significant part of their lives to public service.

Application Deadline: Noon February 22, 2012. For more information access the following link http://scholarships.berkeley.edu/prestigious.php?scholarship=strauss or contact Alicia Hayes at scholarships@learning.berkeley.edu or 643-6929.
