The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, established in 1964, recognizes and honors the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership. In April, the U.S. Department of Education named 17 Wisconsin students semifinalists for the program.
 
The class of 2022 U.S. Presidential Scholars will be recognized for their achievement this summer with an online recognition program. For more information on the program and for a full list of scholars, visit the program’s website.
