The Harry S. Truman Scholarship is a highly competitive and prestigious federal scholarship granted to U.S. college juniors for demonstrated leadership potential and a commitment to public service. The scholarship is in the amount of $30,000 toward a graduate education. According to the Washington Post, the Truman Scholarship's "sole aim is to pick out people with potential to become leaders—then provide support to help them realize their aspirations."

The Hinckley Institute is the University of Utah's designated entity for preparing and nominating Truman Candidates. Come learn about the application and nomination processes with Hinckley Institute of Politics Managing Director Gina Shipley and 2019 Truman Scholar Samantha Throne.
