So I want to commend to each of you some very serious thought--to ask yourselves, “What can you do for your country and, more important, what can you do for your fellow human beings in the world in the allotted time that you have here?" – President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1967 Presidential Scholars Medallion Ceremony


Coming Soon! Seed Grant Program

Many Scholars heard words similar to President Johnson’s at their own Medallion ceremonies, and so many of us have made positive impacts on society. The Presidential Scholars Foundation and Alumni Association want to provide even more opportunities for Scholar alumni to give back to our communities, states, nation, and the world at large.

Now in an effort to provide an avenue to help Scholars use their gifts of intellect and innovation to give back to their communities and the world, the Presidential Scholars Alumni Association has created a new Seed Grant Program to support specific projects led by Scholar alumni. The goal of this program is to support our community of Scholars by providing seed grant money to fund small worthwhile projects. A committee made up of alumni and Foundation Board members is finalizing the particulars of the program and will share the details with the Scholar community soon.
