Donald A. Strauss Scholarship

The Foundation will award scholarships to Junior class level students at pre-selected 4 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 fifteen $10,000 scholarships in the year 2001, 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.
