Funding for Students

Davenport Study Grants

Davenport Study Grants, awarded each spring, support student research and other student scholarly projects in public affairs to begin this summer.  Grants are awarded to sophomores and juniors who have “demonstrated intellectual and moral excellence and a concern for public affairs” and “who by their personal qualities and vocational and scholarly intentions give greatest promise of leadership in the public service.” These funds are made available through a gift to Wesleyan University from the Surdna Foundation in honor of Frederick Morgan Davenport, Wesleyan University Class of 1889, and Edith Jefferson Andrus Davenport, Wesleyan University, Class of 1897.            Click here to visit the page.
