Students who rank number one or two in their graduating class will be considered for the Presidential Scholars Award. An additional one-time Enrichment Award is made available to allow the Presidential Scholar to engage in educationally or professionally enriching activities. Priority consideration will be given to those who complete the application by December 1st. To be eligible for nomination, the student must be a Connecticut resident graduating from a Connecticut high school. Some restrictions may apply. This is renewable for four years, and it is valued at a fixed amount determined on a yearly basis (plus a one-time $2,500 Enrichment Award).
