The Leadership Fellows Program is a selective leadership cohort and scholarship program for students demonstrating leadership ability.

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

- Matthew 20:28

About the Program

The Leadership Fellows Program at Eastern University educates, develops, and equips the next generation of Christ-centered leaders to be agents of change on Eastern's campus and in the wider local and global community, reflecting the University's fundamental core commitments to Faith, Reason, and Justice. 

Leadership Fellows Scholarships are available to select students who have demonstrated leadership potential in school, church, or community activities, as well as academic achievement. About 25 students per year are awarded scholarships of $2,000 per year for the duration of their time at Eastern University (up to four years).

The Leadership Fellows Program is much more than a scholarship! It is a transformative leadership development approach supporting students' growth as leaders through experiential learning, events and training, mentoring, and leadership curriculum. 

All areas of previous leadership experiences are welcome, including:

  • student government
  • athletics
  • clubs
  • service organizations (including honor societies)
  • arts
  • media
  • church groups
