As the Truman Scholarship's Niagara University campus representative, it is my pleasure to announce that the application process for the 2014 Truman Scholarship is open and the deadline is February 4th.
The mission of the Truman Scholarship Foundation--in memorial to our thirty-third President--awards merit-based scholarships to college students who plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public service. Truman Scholars receive up to $30,000 for graduate or professional school, participate in leadership development activities, and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government.
The Foundation has supported Truman Scholars in many fields of study, from agriculture, biology, engineering, technology, medicine, and environmental management, to fields such as economics, education, government, history, international relations, law, political science, public administration, nonprofit management, public health, and public policy.
If you know of graduating 4th-year students pursuing their graduate or professional education who really stand out for their absolute excellence and true dedication to public service, please have them review the information available at http://www.truman.gov then have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with these students (and faculty) in bringing to NU a prestigious future Truman Scholarship recipient.
