Sep. 12, 2013
If you are a graduating senior this may be the opportunity you have been waiting for...
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. A portion of the stipend, $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.
Samuel Huntington was President and Chief Executive Officer of the New England Electric System which later merged with National Grid. He was deeply interested in public service. Following his graduation from college and before attending law school, Mr. Huntington taught in Nigeria. The Samuel Huntington Public Service Award was established by his friends to allow other students to realize similar experiences and to provide public service.
The award allows recipients to engage in a meaningful public service activity for one year before proceeding on to graduate school or a career.
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. Applications must be submitted by January 18, 2014 and should also include a one-page cover sheet, proposal, budget, transcript, resume, and three letters of recommendation.
