The Presidential Freedom Scholarships promote student service and civic engagement. These scholarships, funded in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency, recognize high school students for outstanding leadership in service to the studentís community and neighbors.

High school students across the nation are solving the problems in the studentís communities, demonstrating compassion for others, and servicing those who need support. The President has called upon Americans to serve the communities and the nation. Many students have answered that call to service. Outstanding high school students are eligible for recognition through a Presidential Freedom Scholarship.

Every high school within every state annually receives information on this scholarship opportunity. Counselors should share this information with current and soon to be juniors and seniors.

Visit these two websites for more details, application, and requirements of the Presidential Freedom Scholarship.
