The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by Executive Order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our Nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors. Annually, up to 161 students are chosen from among outstanding seniors to become U.S. Presidential Scholars, one of the Nation’s highest honors for high school students. The 2021 Presidential Scholars will be announced in May, 2021.
