Wallerstein Scholarship


Deadline: 2017-03-31 (National)

The Wallerstein Scholarship was established in 1973 at the University of Virginia by a gift from Ruth C. and Morton L. Wallerstein to foster interest and research in Virginia local government. It provides support to an exceptional individual for a period of one year for the purpose of undertaking research as a graduate student or fourth-year undergraduate student at the University of Virginia. Several previous scholarship recipients hold policy-making and management positions in state and local government in Virginia. The annual Scholarship is administered by the Virginia Municipal League (VML) and the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service.


A rising 4th year student or graduate student who demonstrates an interest in local government through past experience with internships, volunteering, relevant research, or by a brief essay defining an interest in local government. The scholarship is targeted towards graduate students, but rising 4th year students may be considered. Please see the application for more eligibility details.
