The Peter Muhlenberg Award
The Peter Muhlenberg Award is part of the grassroots "learn-to-earn" movement. This scholarship Award aims to empower young adults with alternative views of historical interpretation, especially as relating to America's founding and its present challenges and opportunities.
George Orwell once famously wrote that “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” This module of three courses proposes the idea that this may, in fact, be happening to many Americans in a systematic way.
This Award is named after Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg (October 1, 1746 – October 1, 1807), who was an American clergyman, Continental Army soldier during the American Revolutionary War, and a political figure in the newly independent United States. A Lutheran minister, he served in the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate representing Pennsylvania.
The Peter Muhlenberg Award is offered by individual and group sponsors to students who complete the three courses and related activities presented below. The sponsor is able to use this scholarship platform as a way to "unlock" funding relating to higher ed and continuing learning opportunities, for students who show the intentionality of completing the learning requirements.
Thinker Education Fund will also send a certificate of completion to the student once the requirements are met, so The Peter Muhlenberg Award can also be referenced on student applications and resumes.
