Opportunity for USA high school juniors and accompanying educators to participate in a leadership development program. Participants will receive mentorship, college guidance support, and funding to implement community benefit projects. Eligible applicants attend public schools with a 30% or greater overall free and reduced lunch rate.
Each year, 17 high school juniors and an educator from each of their schools are selected from across the United States and Africa as Bezos Scholars. The experience kicks off with an exciting and inspiring trip to the Aspen Ideas Festival for a full week of Scholar-exclusive experiences with world-renowned leaders — all while having fun and building lasting friendships.
Throughout the program year, Scholars engage in dynamic virtual workshops designed to spark personal reflection and growth, hone leadership skills, and apply learning through project-based opportunities. It all culminates in Scholar designed and led community change projects that raise awareness and mobilize action to address community needs.
