The Truman Scholarship is a highly prestigious national program that recognizes and supports the nation's top undergraduates committed to public service leadership. The Truman Scholarship recognizes future "change agents" and leaders who will make a difference by improving conditions in society or the ways that government, nonprofit organizations, or educational institutions serve the public. Truman Scholars receive up to $30,000 toward a graduate degree in public-service related fields. Perhaps more importantly, Truman Scholars gain opportunities for summer internships, receive career and professional development, and join a powerful network of Truman Scholar alumni.
