Presidential Scholars

The Presidential Scholars program is not only a program to support high achieving incoming students throughout their undergraduate careers, it also aims to give those students a competitive edge when seeking to gain places at grad school or in the job market. In addition to the scholarship itself, the Presidential Scholars program at Oakland provides unique leadership opportunities, including those that build important academic, research and professional leadership skills.
