Application Process

Leadership Program Application Process

The application window will be announced in September 2016.

Identifying information

One (1) short, but compelling, essays (500-700 words each). We recommend completing your essay in Microsoft Word (or other word-processing program) and then pasting into the application. Please describe what leadership means to you. Support your answer with a description of how you see yourself evolving as a leader.

Please explain an experience you had working in a team or group in which you worked to overcome some obstacle or adversity. This may be in the context of extra-curricular or curricular activities, or in your family or religious or civic organization. What did you learn about yourself and about leadership from this experience?

After reviewing the Leadership Program Website, what particularly interests you about participating in this program? Why do you want to join? One (1) recommendation from someone who knows you well, but is not a relative, who can discuss your leadership abilities. Additionally, we will consider the applicant’s secondary or high school transcript that has already been included with the student’s application. However, academic achievement is just one factor in the selection process.

We look forward to reading your application!
