Hamilton Award 2021 for High School Juniors

Description

The Hamilton Award recognizes young people for their academic, personal, service and entrepreneurial accomplishments. Up to 35 underserved (first-generation, low income, extenuating circumstances, etc.) high school juniors from across the nation are selected annually as winners of the Hamilton Award and subsequently enrolled in the five-year Alexander Hamilton Scholars (AHS) Empowerment Program. All applicants should be college-bound and committed to participating in our rigorous five-year curriculum, designed to provide a comprehensive network of support and practical guidance to Alexander Hamilton Scholars as they transition from high school to college and college to career. Each year of the program also includes an all-expenses-paid leadership conference hosted in various cities around the world. To be enrolled in the five-year program and receive the $500 monetary component of the award, Scholars must attend New York Leader Week from July 10-15 2021. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website: www.hamiltonscholars.org.
