The Hamilton Award

The purpose of the Hamilton Award is to recognize high school students for their academic, personal, service and entrepreneurial achievements and to select students for the Hamilton Leaders Academy.


Winners of the Hamilton Award are automatically enrolled in the Hamilton Leaders Academy, where they join a distinguished cohort of peers from across the US who learn from one another and grow together as they take steps towards a college education. Enrollment in the Hamilton Leaders Academy also includes the following: a $500 cash scholarship; an autographed copy of Richard Brookhiser's "Alexander Hamilton, American"; an autographed copy of William Chrystal's "Hamilton by the Slice"; proclamation signed by Doug Hamilton, the fifth great-grandson of Alexander Hamilton; a Hamilton pin courtesy of the Hamilton family and letters of congratulations. Bio-sketches of winners appear on our website and news releases are sent to city, state and federal elected officials as well as local newspapers.

The Hamilton Leaders Academy is a no student cost program that helps students get into college, transition to college, succeed while in college and transition to the post college world. Currently the program is two years in length. Each year of the program includes an "academic-year" of curriculum, running from September to April, along with a week-long summer leadership camp we call "Leader Week." The academic year consists of individual support through email and phone calls and group support through conference calls. Each "Leader Week" takes place in a different location. The first year takes place in Seattle; the second year concludes with an international service experience.
