Harvey Mudd College seeks to educate engineers, scientists and mathematicians well versed in all of these areas and in the humanities and social sciences so that they may assume leadership in their fields with a clear understanding of the impact of their work on society.
The President’s Scholars Program is a four-year, full-tuition scholarship program that identifies and encourages outstanding young men and women who have the potential to be future leaders in engineering, science, mathematics and technology, and who are from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented at HMC or are the first in their families to attend college. The college also seeks individuals who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, an exceptional sense of responsibility and self-reliance, and who advance the college's diversity efforts. Qualities that would strengthen one’s candidacy for PSP include: exceptionally strong high school preparation, including evidence that the applicant has actively sought out learning opportunities beyond those normally available at his or her school; indications that the applicant has overcome personal obstacles to achieve academic success; evidence of leadership in school, church, or community organizations; evidence that the applicant has the personal qualities and motivations that would allow him or her to benefit especially from what HMC has to offer. The benefits to each incoming first-year President's Scholar include: A full-tuition scholarship to HMC, renewable for the full four years, subject to satisfactory academic progress; and participation in HMC's Summer Institute enrichment program prior to the start of freshman year. To be eligible to be selected as a President's Scholar, you must: Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident; Demonstrate a potential for leadership and contribution to Harvey Mudd College; Show a proven record of academic success, including a rigorous course schedule and excellent grades, and be among the top students in your secondary school; and Be a first-year applicant for admission to HMC. Special consideration is given to students from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in engineering, science, mathematics and technology, including women, ethnic minorities, students from low income backgrounds, students with disabilities, and students who will be the first in their family to attend college. Current HMC students, international students, and transfer applicants are not eligible to apply. Only first-year students are eligible.
