Preapplication Coordination

Each July the chief executive officers of all accredited U.S. colleges and universities are invited to appoint a Truman Scholarship Faculty Representative to manage the selection and nomination of up to four students for the forthcoming year's Truman Scholarships. The standard nomination forms with instructions will be provided in September to the designated faculty representatives of all such institutions whose presidents or chancellors inform the Foundation of their intent to participate. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

Note: This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.



Note: In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).


1. It is the intent of the Foundation to renew Scholarship awards made to college juniors for a period not to exceed three academic years of study, in accordance with the regulations established by its Board of Trustees, and subject to an annual review for compliance with these requirements. 2. The Foundation may terminate a Scholarship: a. when a student has not maintained, satisfactory proficiency, or b. when the student is no longer enrolled in a program preparing her or him specifically for public service as specified by the Foundation. 3. A Scholar may seek postponement of her or his award because of ill health or other mitigating circumstances, upon application to the Executive Secretary.

Note: In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
