summary

Although winning a major competitive scholarship, such as the Rhodes or Marshall, is a strong marker for later success, there has been little serious research on how these scholarships are given and how the process could be improved. This book, the fruits of a discussion on "strengthening nationally and internationally competitive scholarships," presents studies that address issues of identifying leadership and creativity in the young, analyze alternative methods of selection, make suggestions for the proper evaluation of scholarship programs, and look at the backgrounds of American Rhodes Scholars. An introduction by the editors provides an overview of the issues.
