Information for Finalists
The Truman is a very competitive national scholarship. Each year, the Foundation reviews over 600 applications for our 55 to 65 Scholarships awarded annually. These 600 applications do not include the students who compete on their own campus for one of a school's four nominations.
Please review these dates before applying. These dates are firm; the Foundation will not accommodate requests for changes to these dates.
