McLarty Scholars are emerging leaders who endeavor to improve lives and increase opportunities for women around the world through meaningful public service and contribute towards building bridges in the global community.

Scholars conduct cutting-edge research and collect crucial data to inform and shape life-changing programs in partnership with mission-driven organizations in Washington, DC. Their work helps drive civic empowerment, promote peace, and support human rights around the world, while helping the local communities they serve to access these organizations’ global networks.

“We are eager to share our experiences and to extend opportunities for learning and service to others; to build a bridge between Arkansas and the wider world; to inspire young people to think globally, in our interdependent world community.”

Mack & Donna McLarty, co-founders of McLarty Scholars
