Yes, 16 graduating seniors are chosen to receive the Gold Medal Portfolio Award, which is accompanied by a $10,000 scholarship. Silver Medal Portfolio with Distinction scholarships of $1,000 are also given to select Award recipients as determined by the national portfolio panel. Additional scholarships are provided annually through our Special Achievement Awards.
The Alliance also partners with colleges and universities to earmark scholarships for college-bound National Medalists. We send these schools a special announcement with a list of all graduating seniors who received a National Medal in 2018. Students who apply to colleges on our list of Scholarship Partners will be considered for scholarships from those schools. You don’t need to call these schools to tell them about your National Medal—we’ve already told them about you!
Please note that not all National Medalists will receive a scholarship.
