This year 16 students from across the nation were picked as winners for the 2009 ACLU Youth Activist Scholarship Program. Each of these graduating high school seniors will receive a scholarship towards their first year of college, as well of the opportunity to participate in the Youth Activist Institute at the National ACLU office in NYC.

You too can join the generation of young people who are fighting to keep America safe and free! At the ACLU, we believe that anyone can be a civil liberties activist: all it takes is staying involved in your community and standing up for a cause you believe in. Around the country, high school students are taking a stand for their rights as well as the rights of their peers; despite the adversity they face, these young leaders refuse to back down.
Congratulations to our impressive group of winning activists, and high school juniors: be on the lookout for details in the fall for next year’s scholarship program!
