Meet the Scholars

Since 2005, Scholars have raised awareness and mobilized action in their communities and beyond. As Bezos Scholars, students and educators from across the U.S. and Africa have inspired change on important issues including civic engagement, STEAM education, peer-to-peer mentoring, and much more.
