The Governor’s Scholars Program provides opportunities for academic and personal growth as students balance a busy schedule in the sciences, mathematics, social sciences, humanities, and the arts along with seminars, community improvement projects, and co-curricular, residential, and student-initiated activities.  

A statewide selection committee chooses students from nominations submitted by school districts. Criteria include academic records and test scores, teacher and community recommendations, extracurricular and service activities, and a writing entry. The program is free.
