An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the destination of a trip awarded to all Truman scholars. In fact, the scholars travel to the Truman Presidential Library in Missouri with the program. The article also incorrectly stated that the scholarship guarantees recipients a job after graduation. In fact, though it does provide resources and support for finding employment, it does not ensure the recipient a job.
