|The Otho Davis Scholarship Foundation will award scholarships annually in accordance with the wishes of Otho Davis. He expressed the following desires and qualifications, which constitute the policy of our foundation:
“A scholarship will be awarded to a deserving graduate student in a school program of study whose area of concentration is in sports medicine, physical training, or sports marketing.
The award will be based upon an overall review of merit and financial need by the members of the foundation’s Board of Trustees. The candidate must either attend school in or be a resident of either Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey or Northern Delaware. The awarded scholarship will be directly sent to the school on behalf of the student and must be used within five years of the award acceptance.”.
We will be awarding two Graduate students a scholarship in the amount of $20,000 each.
|The applicant must also exhibit significant financial need and should note their current total educational debt. This information must be addressed or the application will not be considered. A letter from the financial aid office will usually suffice. Scholarship finalists may be asked to provide verification of total educational debt.|
|If you are interested in applying for the annual Otho Davis scholarship, please CONTACT A REPRESENTATIVE.
The application should be submitted no later than October 15, 2019.
The application for the scholarship must include the following material:
|An introductory letter written by the candidate, introducing him/herself and explaining his/her current curriculum and professional goals. The letter should include a brief background and provide the trustees with a flavor of the individual and his/her experiences and long-term goals.
A resume reflecting the standard education and work history, but should also include any extra curricular activities and service projects in which they have participated. Service work is very important.
A letter of recommendation from the Dean of the school in which the student is enrolled. Please include GPA.
|The decision will be made by October 25, 2019, and the winning applicant will be notified via communication directly to the school.
