AMOUNT: $15,000

The Samuel Huntington Public Service Award provides a $15,000 stipend for a graduating college senior to pursue one year of public service anywhere in the world. The award allows recipients to engage in a meaningful public service activity for one year before proceeding on to graduate school or a career. The award provides a $15,000 stipend for a one-year public service project: $7,500 is awarded at the beginning of the project; and the remaining $7,500 is awarded upon receipt of a six-month progress report. 

To apply, please develop a proposal for public service in this country or abroad. The proposal may encompass any activity that furthers the public good. It can be undertaken by yourself alone or by working through established charitable, religious, educational, governmental, or other public service organizations.
