The Presidential Freedom Scholarship program recognizes high school juniors and seniors for outstanding leadership in service. Each high school in the United States may award up to two recipients with a $1,000 scholarship for college: Five hundred dollars ($500) is funded from the Corporation's National Service Trust, and the remaining $500 is secured locally from civic groups, local business, and other community based organizations.
While the selection of the recipients is made by the high school, the principal must complete an application in order for the Corporation to release the funds in the form of a check made out to the student and the college that he/she is planning to attend. The application may be completed either in paper or online form.
The Corporation is seeking public comment for approval of the Presidential Freedom Scholarship Application which will be used by high school principals to nominate high school juniors and seniors for this scholarship.
