Scholarship program & cohort for those with demonstrated leadership ability
The Leadership Fellows program is designed to advance and support studentsâ€™ understanding and demonstration of servant leadership within the Eastern community and the global community at large. The program aims to prepare students for purposeful cultural integration as productive innovators and leaders; to commit and engage in addressing current societal problems and to influence the world through a thoughtful commitment to Christian character and behavioral integrity.
Leadership Fellows Grants ($14,000 per year) are available for up to 40 entering College of Arts & Sciences students who have demonstrated leadership potential through high school, church or community activities, as well as academic achievement.Â This cohort model involves a specific first-year orientation and supports studentsâ€™ growth as leaders through classes, workshops, mentoring, and experiential learning.Â Â Â
All areas of previous leadership experiences are welcome, including:
- student government
- service organizations (including honor societies)
- church groups
