Truman Scholarship Info Sessions

Some details on the Truman.

The Truman Scholarship is a highly prestigious national award that recognizes the nation’s top undergraduates committed to public service careers. Truman Scholars receive funding for their last year of undergraduate as well as for graduate school. Perhaps more importantly, Truman Scholars have the possibility of summer internships, receive career and professional development, and join a powerful network of Truman Scholar alumni.  For more information: http://www.truman.gov.
