THE JAMES J. DAVIS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
James J. Davis, known to most as Jim, was a dear friend and colleague to Kymanox founder, Stephen M. Perry. Jim embraced continual learning through new experiences. He never took short cuts and didn’t feel they worked. In order to really know something, he felt you had to experience it, to live it. Jim was constantly seeking out new experiences to broaden his knowledge of the world. It is in this spirit that the scholarship was designed.
The Kymanox mission is to facilitate effective and efficient knowledge transfer. James J. Davis taught us that there are few things as effective and efficient in transferring knowledge as experience. The selected scholarship recipient will receive $1,000.00 (USD) for 2014/2015 educational-related expenses. The goal of these funds is to encourage students to study abroad and experience something new to grow their knowledge of the world.
Thanks to the more than 60 applicants for the scholarship this year!
