    Where do you find information on the Danforth Scholarship? It is not on the main site for all the scholarships.

    You are right, the Danforth program is not mentioned on the WashU site. You have to be nominated by your GC for the Danforth. Nomination forms are available from the WashU admissions office. Once the nomination is sent in, there is an application to be completed. Early next year, semifinalists are notified. All semifinalists are invited for Scholars interview weekend at WashU (WashU picks up all expenses). This weekend usually takes place the end of March. Finalists are selected at this weekend. Finalists are awarded either a 1/2 or full tuition scholarship for 4 years. There are also other benefits to being part of the Danforth program.
