The mission of the President's Emerging Global Scholars (PEGS) program is to accelerate the personal and professional and development of exceptional people. We recruit young people who have demonstrated resolve and engagement, then give them opportunities to work with other strong individuals in a variety of environments and endeavors to see what they can really do.

The objective of PEGS is to prepare our students to do greater things. We know the program is working when their minds are stretched, their hands are dirty, and their hearts are full. These objectives are met when the students have been admitted into exceptional advanced academic programs, when they have records of international experience and community engagement, and they have achieved leadership positions in their self-selected student organizations. Each of these objectives directly prepares our participants for excellent applications to graduate school, elite scholarships, and exceptional employment opportunities.
