External Fellowships and Scholarships
The Haas Center provides advising and support for students applying to a number of external public service fellowships and scholarships.
Donald A. Strauss Scholarship
The Donald A. Strauss Public Service Scholarship was created as a memorial to the late Don Strauss, who demonstrated a strong, lifelong commitment to public service and education. The Foundation annually awards $15,000 to no fewer than 14 California college sophomores or juniors who have reflected a similar commitment.
The Truman Scholarship seeks juniors with exceptional leadership potential who are committed to careers in government, the nonprofit or advocacy sectors, education, or elsewhere in the public service. The scholarship supports graduate or professional study, leadership training, and fellowship with other scholars who are committed to making a difference through public service.
Newman Civic Fellowship
The Haas Center puts out a call each fall to the Stanford community to help identify a nominee for the Newman Civic Fellowship, a national student recognition awarded by the Campus Compact. The award is given annually to one Stanford student who is outstanding in their commitment to social change and civic engagement.
