The Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars was created on the recommendation of then president Milton S. Eisenhower and approved by the university’s board of trustees on May 1, 1967.

The society — the first of its kind in the nation — honors individuals who completed their graduate, postdoctoral, professional or performance training at Johns Hopkins, but are not currently affiliated, and who have achieved marked professional or scholarly distinction in their fields.  Nominees must have been in residence at Johns Hopkins University for at least one year and must have been separated from JHU for at least 5 years prior to the nomination deadline of the current year. All graduate and postdoctoral alumni are eligible. Peabody post-baccalaureate performance alumni are also eligible.

The Society of Scholars Selection Committee, whose members are distributed among the academic divisions, annually elects a limited number of scholars from the candidates nominated by the academic division.
