SERVICE BEYOND SELF: EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
In 2023, we welcomed another remarkable class of Tillman Scholars, and expanded the community to more than 850 leaders nationwide.
As the next generation of private and public sector leaders, the Tillman Scholars are tackling challenges across national security, healthcare, technology, civil rights, education and more. They believe their best years of service to our country are still ahead of them, and they are committed to strengthening communities at home and around the world.
On behalf of the Tillman Scholars who have been empowered by your commitment and generosity, thank you.
