Morven Park Scholarship in the James Madison Center for Civic Engagement
An annual scholarship established by the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, Inc.
The purpose of this gift is to establish the Morven Park Scholarship in the James Madison Center for Civic Engagement providing four scholarships of $3,000 each per year. Morven Park Scholars must be incoming freshmen who graduated from Loudoun County Public Schools and participated in at least one Morven Park Center for Civic Impact lesson or program between kindergarten and 12th grade. Participation information must be submitted with the scholarship application. In a 500-word essay, applicants must describe the skills they learned during the Morven Park Center for Civic Impact lesson(s) and explain how those skills inform their civic participation today. They must also indicate their intention to participate in James Madison University Center for Civic Engagement (“JMU CCE”) activities and events. The scholarships are renewable for up to three years, provided that funding is available, for recipients who participate in the JMU CCE activities and events. Scholarships will be administered at the discretion of the Director of the JMU CCE and follow the University’s guidelines for the awarding of scholarships.
