Lang Opportunity Scholarship Program
The Eugene M. Lang Opportunity Scholarship Program each year selects up to six (6) members of Swarthmore College's sophomore class as Lang Scholars. Selection criteria include distinguished academic and extra-curricular achievement, leadership qualities and demonstrated commitment to civic and social responsibility. As its central feature, the Program offers each Scholar the opportunity and related funding to conceive, design and carry out an Opportunity Project that creates a needed social resource and/or effects a significant social change or improved condition of a community in the United States or abroad. In addition, it offers each Scholar a diverse succession of undergraduate and graduate financial and other benefits. The Program was conceived and endowed by Eugene M. Lang '38.
