Nomination Process

Three students, one siting backwards, sit in chairs and read papers

The Young Leaders Seminar extends invitations to select students based on information we receive through national surveys and standardized tests. In addition, we accept nominations from educators of exceptional teens.

Nominated students must be rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors and have an academic record that places them among the top students nationwide. Nominees will typically rank in the top 5% of their high school class with challenging courses and strong academic performance.

Spaces are limited and nominees must accept their nomination in order to be admitted to the program. Once nominations are reviewed, nominees will receive an email with instructions on how to accept their nomination and next steps.
