The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation provides merit-based scholarships to college students in their junior year. Candidates who plan to pursue careers in public service, such as in government, nonprofit or advocacy sectors, education or public health should apply. Truman Scholars receive up to $30,000 for graduate or professional school, participate in leadership development activities, and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government.
