With the help of college counselors and other educators at high schools in Los Angeles County, New York City, and Washington D.C., the Milken Scholars Program identifies outstanding students who will graduate by June of 2020. These students are nominated for the Program based on the following criteria:

B) Minimum composite SAT I Reasoning score of 1350 with results submitted for Evidenced-Based Reading and Writing, and Math, or a minimum ACT score of 29 (This score may be a combination from multiple sittings);

C) Active participation in community service activities;

D) A record of leadership;

E) Financial or Other Obstacles;

F) Admission to a four-year college or university prior to final selection; and

G) United States Citizenship or Permanent Residency.

Students nominated by their college advisers to participate in the Program must complete a rigorous selection process that includes completion of a five-page application, as well as submission of letters of recommendation, high school transcripts, test score sheets, and a financial aid profile. Finalists are then selected and invited to interview.

A) An annual monetary recognition award of $2,000 for each of their four years of college;

B) Ongoing academic and career-related counseling;
