Funding: Verizon Wireless Scholarships related to Domestic Violence

Verizon Wireless Scholarships related to Domestic Violence 

Are you an undergraduate with a commitment to working against domestic violence?  GWSS may be able to provide you some financial support.  We are the fortunate recipients of a grant from Verizon—which has a long corporate history of supporting shelters and other DV programs—for students who are committed to deepening their knowledge and skills related to domestic violence (broadly interpreted).

  • Are you doing an internship in an agency that addresses DV in the next two quarters?
  • Are you doing work or an internship that addresses other topics (such as foster care, or disabilities) where DV enters into the picture?
  • Have you wanted to spend some time thinking about and researching issues related to DV?

The Verizon Scholarship has been established to support undergraduate students with just such interests.  This scholarship  can provide up to $2000 /quarter to students whose internship / research will enhance the likelihood that they will pursue further study or work in areas that address DV.

If you are interested and think you might qualify, download the cover sheet and submit a proposal that specifies:

  1. What background (courses, internships, volunteer, or employment) you have related to domestic violence?
  2. A specific proposal outlining a plan of study for one or two quarters that will strengthen your skills and knowledge related to DV.
  3. A letter of reference from a faculty member and/or one from an agency or program you have worked in that testified to your background and commitment.

Deadline:
May 11th, 2012 by 5:00 p.m.

Submit to:

note: the coversheet and 3 part proposal should be included in one PDF document.
