Gage Davis Associates Urban Planning Travel Scholarship Endowment

Gage Davis generously established this scholarship to expand the educational experience of urban planning students through the opportunity to travel to countries outside the United States. The inspiration for this scholarship came from his experiences traveling, working and studying architecture, design and planning in some of the world’s most well-known cities, prior to attending architecture school at the University of Colorado.



The endowment will provide travel scholarships for students enrolled in the urban planning degree programs in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, in accordance with the following criteria:

  • Scholarships are to be used to provide funds for U.S. citizens or permanent residents to travel outside the United States.
  • Recipients shall be full-time graduate students or undergraduate students at the junior or senior level.
  • Students are expected to return to ASU for a minimum of one semester prior to graduation so they may share their travel experiences with other students and faculty.
