Seventy-five U.S. colleges and universities are eligible to make nominations for the Luce Scholars Program. The participating institutions are chosen to represent a broad cross-section of American higher education. The list of participating schools is reviewed and revised from time to time.

Each nominating institution has designated a member of its faculty or administration to serve as the campus liaison for this program. The Luce Scholar liaison on each campus will establish an internal application deadline, typically sometime in October, as well as procedures for internal candidate review.

A nominating institution may submit three nominations for each year’s Luce Scholars competition. Deadline for submission is November 1. The Foundation cannot accept applications submitted directly by individual candidates.
