Harry S. Truman Scholarship

The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation was created by Congress in 1975 as the nation’s living memorial to President Harry S. Truman and selects and supports the next generation of public service leaders. The Truman Scholarship is one of the most prestigious national scholarships in the United States.  Prominent Truman Scholars include Neil Gorsuch, Susan Rice and George Stephanopoulos.

Truman Scholars receive $30,000 for graduate school and professional development opportunities to prepare for a career in public service leadership.  Students must be college juniors at the time of selection; applications are due in the fall.
