The Scholars are selected by The Commission on Presidential Scholars based on accomplishments in many areas: academic and artistic success, leadership and involvement in school and the community. At the request of the Commission, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA) serves as the exclusive nominating agency for the Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
