Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program

Each year, select incoming freshmen are invited to apply for an Emerging Leaders Scholarship. The students who receive the competitive scholarship take part in a seminar experience during the fall semesters of the freshman and sophomore years. The foci of the seminar are (a) to learn about topics in leadership for the common good, (b) to participate in out-of-class sessions with faculty and students, and (3) to engage in group service projects. During the sophomore year, the Emerging Leaders take on a mentoring role for the first year Emerging Leaders. Emerging Leaders also receive priority consideration for the LeaderShape Institute.

Questions about the Emerging Leaders program should be directed to Dr. Michelle Schmidt at
