Presidential Scholars Program and Presidential Scholars for Career and Technical Education
The Presidential Scholars Program recognizes and honors high school seniors who have demonstrated high achievement academically or in the arts; some having to overcome special challenges or hurdles to do so. Starting in 2016, outstanding students who demonstrate excellence in career and technical education will also be included for Presidential Scholar recognition.
This year the Commission on Presidential Scholars is expanding the program by inviting each Chief State School Officer to nominate up to 20 students, ten male and ten female for the Presidential Scholars program. Five students may be nominated for the Presidential Scholars in Career and Technical Education category. These are two separate nomination forms.
To nominate a student for the Presidential Scholars program or the Presidential Scholars in Career and Technical Education program they must complete the nomination form and submit it to the address indicated. Nomination forms may be accessed by clicking on the link below.
Schools may only nominate two students from their school, one for each program. Nominations must be postmarked by September 16, 2015.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to recognize outstanding students in your school. For more information about the program, please contact Tamla Miller at 785-296-4950 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
