Every spring, our Earl Woods Scholar Program staff and committee have the honor of selecting the next cohort of students to bear the name of Earl Woods Scholar. While it’s one of the most rewarding and inspiring seasons of the year, it’s also an arduous task, narrowing down a pool of over 1,000 incredible applicants to a total of 45 lucky recipients. From Orange County and Boston, to New York and Washington, D.C., our staff spent nearly 25 hours interviewing candidates to identify high-potential students in need who demonstrate a commitment to community service–the hallmarks of an Earl Woods Scholar. After painstaking deliberation, a new class of truly impressive and ambitious individuals emerged.
