benjamin Templeton scholars
Advisory board

Exceptional students who have participated in or led programs that promote diversity, human rights, or social justice for race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity, receive a $2,500 renewable scholarship as part of the program.

The Benjamin Templeton Scholars Advisory Committee was developed to support the program in the following ways:

  • Foster and support a creative atmosphere that encourages ambitious thinking on future program development.
  • Support the Benjamin Templeton Scholars in efforts to connect with local, regional, and national leaders within the social justice, human rights, and diversity education and advocacy communities.
  • Participate in the Benjamin Templeton Scholar selection process (i.e. participation in Templeton Competition Weekend individual interviews, serving as a judge for the Competition Weekend group interview, supporting scholarship deliveries, etc.).
  • Assist with Benjamin Templeton Scholar development (i.e. serve as a class sponsor, professional resource, present at the Templeton Retreat, etc.).
  • Identify and develop a strong base of financial support for the long-term stability and growth of the program.
