The U.S. Presidential ​Scholars Program from the U.S. Department of Education was established in 1964 by the President’s executive order to recognize and honor some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students with exceptional visual, creative,​ and performing arts talent. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Please encourage high school seniors to complete the application, provided they meet all program qualifications outlined by the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.

The attached student informational brochure includes information on the application criteria and the two required essays.
