Come learn about how to apply for institutional nomination to become a Truman Scholar!
The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation awards 55-65 scholarships of up to $30,000 to exceptional college juniors who want to work in government, education, the nonprofit sector, or the public interest/advocacy sector. Truman Scholars are agents for change and have an extensive background in community service; a commitment to a career in government or the nonprofit and advocacy sectors; communication skills and a high probability of becoming a “change agent”; and a strong academic record with likely acceptance to the graduate school of the candidate’s choice.
There is an internal selection process for this award, and anyone who is interested in applying must contact Dr. April Householder, Director of Undergraduate Research and Nationally Competitive Scholarships at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be considered for institutional nomination.
