The $2,500 per-year scholarship, named after ALPF charter members and owners of Happy Days Dream Cars, John and Helen Meyers, is awarded each year to ALPF interns and junior fellows who demonstrate excellence in civic service and leadership, and is just one of several scholarships awarded by ALPF on an annual basis.

“Thanks to the generosity of John and Helen Meyer, ALPF will be able to support deserving young leaders as they work towards educational goals while conducting research and learning how to serve America,” said Chairman Stuckenberg. “The scholarship serves as the first step in a series of on going initiatives named for U.S. presidents who inspired service to our nation. The initiatives include paid fellowships and internships designed to help cultivate tomorrow’s civic leaders.”

Jim Stuckenberg presents a painting to Ronald Reagan; this and other Stuckenberg pieces are on display at the Reagan Ranch Center (Santa Barbara, CA) and Reagan Presidential Library (Simi Valley, CA).

The American Leadership and Policy Foundation Chairman, David Stuckenberg, presents Happy Days Dream Cars and ALPF charter members, John and Helen Meyers, with a limited edition pen and ink sketch by his father and Presidential Artist, Jim Stuckenberg. Jim created 50 numbered and signed prints to give to ALPF charter members. 

“Thanks to the generosity of John and Helen Meyer, ALPF will be able to support deserving young leaders as they work towards educational goals while conducting research and learning how to serve America,” said Chairman Stuckenberg. “The scholarship serves as the first step in a series of on going initiatives named for U.S. presidents who inspired service to our nation. The initiatives include paid fellowships and internships designed to help cultivate tomorrow’s civic leaders.”

 

Chairman Stuckenberg continued, “John and Helen represent the best of what it means to be an American. Their work ethic, generosity, honor, and concern for our nation is an inspiration.”

The Meyers chose to name the scholarship after President Ronald Reagan, whom they believe demonstrated leadership traits that should be emulated - humility and service.
