"The Leadership Fellows Program has been my favorite and most meaningful experience here at Eastern. LFP has given me the opportunity to better my leadership skills while developing lifelong community. It has helped me use my God given passions and talents to create and lead the Operation Net group on campus. Operation Net is an organization that raises awareness and money for the issue of malaria and provides and distributes mosquito nets for the nations of Uganda and Haiti. LFP has been a highlight of my college experience and is an amazing program." - Kali Fairchild, Class of 2013
Applicants will be considered based on leadership experience, Christian commitment, academic achievement and their ability to integrate and embrace LFP’s three core commitments. An interview may be requested.
A minimum GPA of 3.3 is required for admission (although the average GPA for a cohort is above 3.7). Although SAT or ACT scores must be reported and may be considered in the admissions process, there is no minimum required score.
Once all Leadership Fellows application documents are received, LFP admission decisions for the class of 2019 LFP Cohort are processed on a rolling basis and communicated beginning Dec. 1, 2014. For a competitive chance in the selection process please have all application materials submitted by March, 31, 2015. Director Update: New applications for the Class of 2018 LFP cohort are no longer being considered.
Though it is rare that we will accept transfer students or current non-LFP Eastern students into the Leadership Fellows Program we still welcome your applications. The director and/or your admissions councilor can assist you in understanding the programs structure and your ability or inability to complete the requirements as they are designed.
