The Truman Scholarship is a highly competitive, merit-based award offered to U.S. citizens and U.S. nationals from Pacific Islands who wish to go to graduate school in preparation for a career in government, the non-profit sector or elsewhere in public service. Truman Scholars participate in leadership development programs and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the Federal government.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must currently be enrolled in an accredited undergraduate degree program, and be planning on attending graduate school to further a career in public service. At the time you apply, you must either have junior-level academic standing or senior-level standing in your third year of college enrollment. If you are a resident of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands or a Pacific Island, you may apply with senior-level standing.
Students cannot apply directly for Truman Scholarships but must be
nominated by a Truman Scholarship Faculty Representative from their college
or university. Each institution may nominate four students. In addition,
four-year colleges and universities may nominate three transfer students
from two-year colleges. You can identify your school’s Faculty
Representative through the “Faculty Representative Locator” tool on the
Truman Foundation website:
If your school is not listed, you should contact a professor, advisor or other faculty member to see if they are willing to act as a Faculty Representative. You may wish to consult the “How to Become a Fac Rep” section in the guidance we provide on the current year’s competition (visit http://www.truman.gov/how-become-faculty-rep and then click on the first link to access information on this year’s competition). Potential Faculty Representatives may also call or email the Foundation for additional guidance:
