Truman

 

Summary:

Established in honor of our 33rd President, the Truman Scholarships are awarded to students who wish to attend graduate school in preparation for careers in government or elsewhere in public service.  The Foundation defines public service as employment in government at any level, uniformed services, public-interest organizations, non-governmental research and/or educational organizations, and public service oriented non-profit organizations such as those whose primary purposes are to help needy or disadvantaged persons or to protect the environment.  A wide variety of fields of study can lead to careers in public service.  Scholars are eligible to receive $3,000 for the senior year of undergraduate study and $27,000 for graduate work.  Candidates must be juniors, rank in the top quarter of their class, and be endorsed by a campus committee.

The competition has been designed to benefit all participants--not solely those selected as Truman Scholars. It encourages candidates to reflect on the needs of society they want to address professionally, to refine career goals and objectives, and to begin their planning for graduate study.  Harry S. Truman Scholars are selected on the basis of their extent and quality of public and community service and government involvement, their academic performance and writing and analytical skills, their leadership abilities, and the suitability of their proposed program of study for a career in public service.
