The James O. Freedman Presidential Scholars Program was initiated in 1988 and provides opportunities for juniors to work as research assistants with Dartmouth faculty. These opportunities are intended to prepare students for undertaking senior honors theses. In 1997, the Program was endowed by John (Launny) L. Steffens, Dartmouth '63. We are grateful to Mr. Steffens for his generous support of this program. The program was renamed in January of 2007 in honor of James O. Freedman, 16th President of Dartmouth College, in recognition of his commitment to undergraduate teaching and scholarship. ORC section on Presidental Scholars
