National Fellowships

The James S. Kemper Foundation

Official site:
Campus Deadline: January 29, 2016
Final Deadline: TBA, usually mid-March

Established in 1948, the Kemper Scholar Program provides $3,000-$10,000 per year to each recipient for three years, plus $2,000-$6,000 per student for summer internships in the sophomore and junior summers, plus full support for attendance at annual conferences. It also will provide creative opportunities for the development of student leadership by pairing students with executive mentors in non-profit administration, and by sponsoring a network with other Kemper Scholars and program alumni who have achieved notable success in business, politics, and the arts. Fifteen schools are allowed to nominate up to three freshmen for the program each year. Applicants must have strong academic records, an ongoing record of service and leadership, and an interest in a career in business or administration (this may include non-profits or arts organizations). The campus deadline for applications is in mid-January. For more information consult the website and the Director of Student Academic Grants and Awards.
