Approximately 60 merit-based scholarships are awarded annually to juniors who have outstanding leadership potential, plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public service and plan to attend graduate school. The scholarship provides up to $30,000. Candidates must be full-time, junior-level students and must compete according to their legal residence. They should be very active in public and community service, be committed to careers in the public sector, have outstanding leadership potential, and possess intellectual strength, communication skills and analytical abilities. Candidates must be nominated by their institution, so please contact Kristin Bennighoff at UD (or the faculty representative at your university) for internal application deadlines.
