The Bezos Scholars Program is a transformative, year-long, no-cost leadership development program that amplifies youth voice and action so young people with passion can start making a difference today.
Each year, 17 high school juniors and an educator from each of their schools are selected from across the United States and Africa as Bezos Scholars.
Student scholars receive leadership training from noted experts along with free college advising. Community change projects are at the program's center—fresh, achievable, and sustainable approaches to solving urgent problems, conceived and launched by Scholars with our support.
The Bezos Scholarship Program is a program of the Bezos Family Foundation, an independent private foundation that champions the science of learning and its application.
