U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts

As part of the U.S. Presidential Scholars program, nominated students who are a part of Young Arts are initially selected for candidacy based upon their artistic ability. The candidates then submit a comprehensive set of application materials which are reviewed by a committee of qualified individuals. Finally semifinalists' materials are reviewed by the Commission on Presidential Scholars, which is appointed by the President of the United States using the same criteria as the committee. Two of the twenty students receiving 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts awards came right here from Florida! Congratulations to both Katiuscia Gregoire and Mateo Nava of Miami, FL for being recognized with this prestigious award. For more information about this program please visit the U.S. Department of Education's Presidential Scholars at:
