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 United States and Africa have inspired and enabled change on issues such as tolerance, civic engagement, STEAM education, literacy, and much more.
