Discover this Unique Learning Community

Drawing inspiration from both his Christian faith and Mahatma Gandhi’s principles of non-violence, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., along with many other notable figures, led the Civil Rights Movement in the late 1950s and ‘60s to achieve legal equality for African-Americans in the United States.

The Martin Luther King Scholar Program is a learning community that develops current leaders into global citizens committed to promoting a legacy of social justice and equity inspired by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Over four years, the MLK Scholars will build a foundational understanding of civil and human rights to inform their life-long dedication to social justice service, research, and involvement.


The MLK Scholar Program application deadline has been extended to March 1, 2020.
