The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides grants to students actively working for peace and justice. These need-based scholarships are awarded to those able to do academic work at the university level and who are part of the progressive movement on the campus and in the community. The first and most important qualification for a Davis-Putter Scholarship is active participation in struggles for civil rights, economic justice, international solidarity or other progressive issues. Students are also evaluated on financial need and the ability to perform academically at the college level.

The Erik T. Woolley Fellowship for International Internships was established by Dr. Paul O. Woolley, Jr. in 2001 in honor and memory of his son, Erik. Woolley Fellowships are awarded to Washington and Lee University students on an annual basis to support an educational internship experience overseas, usually during the summer. With an expectation that students must prepare themselves for an ever deeper global engagement, regardless of their field of study or career interests, the goal of an international internship will be to foster exposure to and experience in both international professional practice and cultural understanding.
