Locke v. Davey
Washington Governor Gary Locke created the Promise Scholarship program to enable low- and middle-income students to attend college. Josh Davey was awarded a Promise Scholarship, but he was informed that he could not receive the money because he wanted to study theology. He sued Washington State, claiming that its actions violated his First Amendment right to practice his own religious beliefs through his chosen course of study.
