The Herbert Denton Scholars

The 39 Herbert Denton Scholars have attended schools across the country and studied subjects from medicine to theater. After graduation, they have gone on to careers in journalism, politics, finance, non-profit management, fashion, science, entrepreneurship and more.

They have each treasured the opportunity provided by the scholarship, and look forward to each new Denton Scholar.
