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.
