Advocating for the civil rights of all citizens is one of the most important things in the world right now and is an important philanthropic focus.
Martha Mitchell was an advocate for the truth, who worked to expose the truth in the midst of the historic Watergate scandal. She spoke out against all odds and pushed to be seen in a political world dominated by men. In honor of her passionate legacy, the Martha Mitchell Truth Scholarship will support students who plan to spend their careers addressing civil rights issues. This scholarship will encourage students who are interested in pursuing a degree and making a difference in the fight to preserve American civil liberties.
Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply if they have non-profit or volunteering experience and are pursuing a career in preserving civil liberties. To apply, write about why you are passionate about the Constitution, and share how you will use your career to serve the fight for civil rights.
