Harry S. Truman Scholarships

The Harry S. Truman Scholarships are open to college juniors who are US citizens and nationals and who want to go to graduate school in preparation for a career in public service (government or the nonprofit and advocacy sectors). The scholarship consists of a $26,000 grant. Truman Scholars are selected on the basis of their potential as future "change agents" who will improve the ways public entities serve the public good. Candidates should also have an extensive record of campus and community service. Candidates must be nominated by their college or university. Each college may nominate up to four students. (Four-year colleges and universities may also nominate up to three transfer students from two-year colleges.) Approximately 600 students are nominated and between 75 and 80 Truman Scholars are selected each year. The deadline is in early February.
