Students who receive the Jefferson Scholarship come from rural counties and urban environments, from the United States and beyond. They care deeply about the mysteries of science and the beauty of art. There is no typical Jefferson Scholar.

Yet these individuals do share a certain posture. They yearn to ask questions, to take risks. To push toward excellence and to do so humbly. To take control of the next four years and their futures.

They are the leaders, scholars and citizens of a better world ahead.

Is there one in your midst?
