About

In founding the Lincoln Center, the Lincoln family was always interested in facilitating student’s ethical development. In order to better serve this vision, the Lincoln Scholars program was created to give students the opportunity to learn about diverse ethical topics and discuss challenges and solutions with peers. 

Every year, the Lincoln Center gives out $30,000 in scholarships to our students, and directly connects students to talented ASU faculty working in various disciplines. Our program includes a diverse group of students with varying beliefs, cultures and values who share a commitment to understanding and improving the communities to which they belong.
