The Truman Scholars Association is comprised of all recipients of the Harry S. Truman Scholarship. The mission of the Truman Scholars Association is to sustain and empower the community of Truman Scholars and to strengthen the commitment to public service in all its forms through intellectual, personal and professional development. The Truman Scholars Association strives to open lines of communication between those individuals to benefit scholars, society and the legacy of President Harry S. Truman.

All Truman Scholars are automatically members of the Truman Scholars Association and are encouraged to remain actively involved.

The Truman Scholars Association collaborates closely with the separate, congressionally chartered, Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation, which awards scholarships and also sponsors programs for Truman Scholars and others across the country. The Truman Scholars Association and the Truman Scholarship Foundation endeavor to collaborate closely, including in fundraising.
