Nominate Student Leaders For Reagan Scholarships

Exceptional student leaders are invited to apply for the 2012 GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program. In honor of the legacy and character of President Ronald Reagan, this program annually rewards up to 20 college-bound students who demonstrate exemplary leadership, drive, integrity, and citizenship with $10,000 renewable scholarships (up to $40,000 per recipient).

Like President Reagan, candidates use the formative experiences of their youth to lead, serve, and pursue a life of progress, both individually and for their communities. Help put promising young leaders in the running for this prestigious award by:

  • Nominating an exemplary candidate for this award. During the application process, applicants must be nominated by a community leader, such as a high school principal, elected official or nonprofit executive, and each leader may nominate only one applicant.
  • Recommending a candidate for this award. During the application process, applicants must be recommended by an authority figure who has observed them in a leadership role, such as a student activity advisor, community service coordinator, coach, employer, teacher, counselor or religious leader. 
Applications for the GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program will be accepted online until February 17, 2012. Additional information, eligibility requirements, and a link to the application are available online.
