Adelyn Klimek '18 wins prestigious Jefferson Scholarship and Advances as Semifinalist in U.S. Presidential Scholars Program
Posted 05/02/2018 03:35PM

Adelyn Klimek '18 has been awarded one of the most highly selective merit scholarships in the nation. The Jefferson Scholars Foundation at the University of Virginia has selected Klimek as one of 36 recipients of the Jefferson Scholarship. She will commence her studies in the fall at U.Va.

In order to be named a Jefferson Scholar, candidates must undergo a rigorous, highly competitive, multi-stage selection process. This year, nearly 2,000 students were nominated for the Scholarship, 116 finalists were invited to take part in a four-day competition at U.Va., which included seminar discussions, essay and mathematics examinations, as well as interviews conducted by U.Va. alumni and faculty. In addition to receiving the full cost of attending the University for four years, Jefferson Scholars benefit from a number of enrichment programs sponsored by the Foundation, including travel abroad, career networking activities, an outdoor challenge program, and a leadership speaker series. 

The 36 selected recipients of the 2018 Jefferson Scholarship boast a number of significant achievements and Klimek is no exception. Along with her excellent academic record at HB, she is also a 2018 National Merit Finalist and U.S. Presidential Scholars Semifinalist.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students. 

The 2018 U.S. Presidential Scholars will be announced in May.
