The Truman Scholarship is a $30,000 grant awarded on a highly competitive basis to US citizens or nationals preparing for careers in government, non-profit or advocacy areas. Students apply in their junior year, and are selected on the basis of: their records of campus and community service; commitment to a career in public service; communication skills and capacity as a "change agent"; and strong academic record and likelihood of graduate school admission. The application process is extensive, including the completion of a policy proposal, and students must be nominated by the institution (Saint Michael’s College). Deadline for applications is in early February.
