Description The intent of this scholarship is to select individuals with high potential for leadership and future success in public service. The Foundation defines public service as participation in government or in areas related to the public interest, with an emphasis on the student as a potential change agent.
How Do I Apply? Candidates must be nominated by Marist College, and may not apply directly. Student applications must be submitted to the nomination committee.
Essay(s): An essay of no more than 500 words that analyzes a public policy issue of particular interest to the student
What happens after I submit an application? If nominated, the committee will provide feedback on your application, which you should use to finalize your materials, and the College will then submit your application to the Foundation.
What's next? Approximately two weeks following the Truman deadline, the Foundation selects about 200 Finalists who are interviewed by regional selection panels in late February and March. The Foundation anticipates that it will award 75-80 scholarships in 2005.
The Foundation awards scholarships for college students to attend graduate school in preparation for careers in government or elsewhere in public service. Each award totals $26,000, of which $2,000 is allocated for senior year tuition at the student's undergraduate institution and the remainder supports the student's graduate studies. Scholars also receive priority admission and supplemental financial aid at some premier graduate institutions, leadership training, career and graduate school counseling, and special internship opportunities within the federal government.
