The Liberty Scholarship & Leadership Program

The National Liberty Museum, an institution dedicated to honoring heroes of liberty throughout history and encouraging future leaders, is proud to announce our new Liberty Scholarship & Leadership Program. High School Seniors and undergraduate college students are invited to apply by demonstrating their commitment to making a positive difference in the world. The Program includes both monetary awards and various leadership opportunities. 30 winners will be chosen, and award amount varies for the winners.

The National Liberty Museum is dedicated to preserving America’s heritage of freedom by fostering good character, civic responsibility and respect for all people through interactive exhibits, contemporary works of art, and stories of heroes from all walks of life.
