We are excited to announce open applications for the Bezos Scholars Program, open to current high school juniors. We need your help finding the next 12 amazing student and educator pairs that will be selected from across the U.S. to create a lasting impact in their community. As a reminder:

  • The program kicks off with an all-expenses paid experience at the Aspen Ideas Festival, June 27 - July 3, 2020, where Scholars learn from inspiring global leaders and build connections with peers from around the world.
  • During the following school year, Scholars receive ongoing mentorship, leadership development, and $1,000 in funding to launch a community change project to make a difference in their hometowns. 
  • Participating Scholars gain access to dynamic college advising support to help them navigate applications, financial aid, and much more.

Successful applicants demonstrate academic rigor, maturity, curiosity, and community leadership. Do you know a student that would be a great fit? Encourage them to apply! Applications are due January 31, 2020.
