Please nominate one (1) female and one (1) male student for this prestigious award. We encourage you to nominate students who, while demonstrating outstanding scholarship, might not otherwise be nominated through the current SAT/ACT or arts recognition processes. All high school seniors graduating between January and June, 2013, from a public school, parochial school, independent school, or home-school, are eligible, as long as they are United States citizens or legal permanent residents.
As in the past, the 2013 Presidential Scholars will be selected by the Commission on Presidential Scholars and will receive the Presidential Scholars Medallion and an expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June, 2013.

Please submit the names of your two nominees by November 16, 2012. Those selected as Michigan nominees will be added to the larger pool of nominees, announced and invited to apply in mid-January 2013. Completed applications will be due in February, 2013, and Scholars will be announced at the beginning of May, 2013. Scholars nominated through the Center for the Study of Social Organization (CSSO) Pilot Program will not be set apart from the larger group of Scholars.
