STEP 3

Learn more about what we seek.

We ask nominating partners to give careful thought to our four selection criteria: Leadership, Moral Force of Character, Scholarship, and Physical Vigor.

Each year you’ll be searching for two nominees who are both scholars (admissible at competitive universities and embodying a unique intellectual curiosity) and transformational leaders, the gravitational center of your senior class.
