Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Interviewing finalists from Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania

Federal Reserve Bank
100 North 6th Street
Delaware Room and New Jersey Room
Philadelphia, PA 19106

**Note: Please bring a photo ID with you to enter the building.**

This panel will convene at 9:00 a.m. 

For the past several years, the Truman Scholars Association (an organization of Truman Scholar alumni) has hosted pre-interview dinners in the interview cities the night prior to the finalist interviews. The dinners are informal, fun, optional events for the finalists and a few Truman alumni hosts (interview panelists do not attend). The dinner locations are chosen at relatively inexpensive restaurants close to the venue where the students will be interviewed, and each person attending the dinner covers his or her own meal and transportation expenses. All finalists will be contacted by their interview city’s Truman host shortly after the official finalist announcement; if you wish to attend the dinner, please plan to be available for dinner around 7 p.m. in your interview city the evening before your interview.
