San Francisco, California
Interviewing finalists from California

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
Phoenix A & B Rooms
101 Market Street
San Francisco, CA

This panel will convene at 8:30 a.m.  Please access the building using the front entrance at 101 Market Street. Bring a government-issued photo ID to access the premises.

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 Truman Scholars Association generously sponsors the dinners for all finalists. 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.
