Interviewing finalists from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington
Executive Conference Room and Conference Room #115
401 Fifth Avenue
Seattle, WA 98104
This panel will convene at 8:30 a.m. Please bring photo identification to enter the building and wait in the lobby until your escort arrives to direct you to the reception.
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.
