Presidential Citizen Scholar Program
The Presidential Citizen Scholar Program is
a multi-faceted, civic engagement
experience that prepares students to become future community
leaders. The program is by Presidential
invitation only. Students who are invited to apply submit their
application to PACE for review.
The Scholars program offers
students of all majors and levels of experience opportunities to
become engaged in the political life of the community and to
develop habits of citizenship. Students who complete the
requirements of this program receive a certificate and
distinctive recognition as "Presidential Citizen Scholars."
This program builds on PACE's mission to address student apathy
and cynicism about politics by partnering with regional and
state civic organizations to provide experiences of what
authentic politics can be and to offer students hands-on
learning opportunities in government.
