Fellows is a two-year leadership development program that offers emerging student leaders the opportunity to learn and grow as leaders while giving back to the greater community. The program is designed to encourage students to explore important aspects of leadership including multiculturalism, personal responsibility, global perspectives, community engagement, and more. By learning and serving together, participants gain a stronger sense of their own leadership philosophy and styles. When they graduate, participants are better prepared to become leaders in the workforce, their community, and the nation. Some of the commitments to participate in the Fellows program include:

  • Attend 2 monthly seminars about different leadership topics
  • Complete 5 hours of service monthly
  • Complete a reflection paper at the end of each semester
  • Be involved outside of Fellows (part-time job, student organization, RA, etc.)

Each Fellow is awarded a $2,000 annual scholarship (up to two years) in recognition of their involvement with the program. The following individuals have created endowments to provide scholarships. The Fellows program could not exist without their generosity. Our deepest appreciation to:

  • Ruth Kramer Memorial Scholarship
  • Kathryn Jacquin Simpson (Judge John Niehaus Fellowship)
  • Lincoln Office Supply (Lincoln Office Endowed Fellowships for Leadership and Public Service)
  • Mr. Ed King (The Ed King Scholarship)
  • The Robert E. Coker Family (The Robert E. Coker Memorial Scholarship)
  • George P. Shadid Jr. Memorial Endowed Scholarship
  • Michael and Gillian Draper Family Endowed Scholarship
  • Doug Stewart Fellows Endowed Scholarship
