The program is open to all high school seniors who participate in a CTE program, who will graduate between January and June 2019, and who are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Students at public, private, and home schools are eligible. This is not a scholarship program; it is a recognition program. Presidential Scholars will receive a medallion at an expenses-paid ceremony in Washington, D.C. The state may nominate up to five exemplary high school seniors. The Presidential Scholars will be chosen by a commission.
Applications are due by 4 p.m. November 1. Only two scholars per school may be nominated. See http://www2.ed.gov/programs/psp/faq.html#applications. The Alaska contact is Dr. Bjorn Wolter at 907-465-6542 and firstname.lastname@example.org
