Outstanding Scholar Program

Who is Eligible: Individuals who have a bachelors degree and graduated with a 3.45 grade point average or higher, based on a 4.0 scale for all completed undergraduate course work; or have graduated in the upper ten percent of their class or major university subdivision.

Description: The Outstanding Scholar Provision was created as the result of the Luevano Consent Decree which provided for the elimination of under representation of Blacks and Hispanics in specific occupations (through development of examining procedures that would be consistent with the provisions of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as amended). Through the decree, the courts provided agencies a mechanism to non-competitively hire college graduates with GPAs of 3.45 or above into permanent, entry-level competitive service jobs at the GS-5/7 levels.

These appointments may only be made in specific occupations previously covered under the U.S. Office of Personnel Management=s Administrative Careers with America (ACWA).
