This lesser-known award program is open to anyone, regardless of age, sex, or institution, but places a heavy emphasis on students seeking careers in education. In addition to completing the application, top candidates must go through a personal interview in New York City, Washington, DC, New Haven, or Philadelphia on their own dime. Funds can be renewed, but students must maintain academic success in order to do so.
