The United States Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by Executive Order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our Nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors.

Each year up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the Nation’s highest honors for high school students.

Those selected Presidential Scholars don’t get scholarship money. According to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program website, “Students chosen as U.S. Presidential Scholars receive a Presidential medallion, in commemoration of their achievements during National Recognition Program.”
