Leadership Scholars, selected by the Admissions office, are high school students who have shown outstanding leadership in their high school and surrounding community. As of fall 2007 the requirements for a high school student to apply are a 3.00 grade point average and 23 ACT or 1130 SAT, no writing included. Applicants are required to submit a leadership resume and have applied for admissions and the Leadership scholarship by the deadline of January 15, 2019.
Leadership Scholars are required to give three hours of service to the university each week. Freshman and sophomore leadership scholars are assigned to faculty or staff mentors. These mentors help guide their Leadership Scholar through their first two years. The junior and senior leadership scholars are given the option of continuing their service with a faculty or staff member, but if they have a leadership role in a campus organization they may select that as their way of completing their hours. Each semester, leadership scholars are also required to attend a lecture held on campus.
