Donald A. Strauss Scholarship

The Foundation will award scholarships to junior class level students at pre-selected four-year California colleges or universities who:

  • have demonstrated an interest in public service;
  • have outstanding leadership potential;
  • have developed and can demonstrate effective communication skills;
  • wish to 'make a difference' in local, regional or national communities.

The Strauss Foundation will award at least 15 $10,000 scholarships, which will be used to pay for some of the costs of the public service project as well as for tuition, fees, books, room and board. Recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support to be used in their senior year.

The deadline for all nominations to be received by the Foundation is early March.
