Programs for Funding Undergraduate/Graduate Students Studying Social Justice Issues

This is only a select listing of many scholarships and fellowship opportunities available to students interested in social justice issues. There are a lot of programs out there, and some time searching the web may be time well spent; be sure to check the SAGA website's lists organized by area of interest, and the list of national scholarships for which a university nomination is required, as many of these programs (Truman and Udall, for example) encourage a commitment to social justice and experience in community organizing.
