to rising juniors for their junior and senior years of college. Students attending college in Texas or Oklahoma are eligible to apply. While no specific major is required, selected students are expected to have an interest in the mission of the Sumners Foundation which is the study and teaching of the art and science of self-government. Selected Scholars have a variety of aspirations – teaching government, running for office, working for a think tank or other nonprofit related to self-government, government service, etc. We hope you will share this with your students. This year interviews will be conducted in both Austin and Dallas. (Students may only apply for one location.)
