Progress of Ideas Scholarship

The Robert Schalkenbach Foundation (RSF) was founded to promote the ideas of 19th century social reformer Henry George. RSF’s Progress of Ideas Scholarship assists students who share the foundation’s focus on economic equity and social justice, and its drive to discern and challenge the drivers of inequality in our systems of governance and taxation. 

The Progress of Ideas Scholarship provides $5,000 scholarships to students in fields of study related to the organization’s mission. RSF is seeking recipients whose lived experiences have engendered a commitment to social justice and a drive to make the world a better place for all people. 

Applicants must be current college sophomores, juniors or seniors seeking their initial bachelor’s degree, OR be graduate students seeking their initial master’s or Ph.D degree. All applicants must plan to enroll in fulltime undergraduate or graduate study at an eligible institution for the entire upcoming academic year, and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).
