The Illinois Tech Global Leaders Program (formerly IIT Boeing Scholars Academy) is now accepting applications. Apply here: Global Leaders Program Application for 2016. Students currently in their sophomore year of high school are eligible for the program and applications are due Wednesday, February 24. If you would like to nominate a student for the program, fill in their info here. Nominees will receive personalized invites to apply.
To introduce students and families to our program, we are conducting a series of regional info sessions throughout Chicago. This year, we’re partnering with some generous Chicago high schools to bring our info sessions to more neighborhoods. Students and families from all schools are welcome to attend any info session. There is no need to attend more than one info session, so students and families can choose the location and date most convenient for them. A schedule of the info sessions is available here or register online here.
The Global Leaders Program supports highly motivated students as they gain the skills, experience, and knowledge necessary to get to and through highly selective colleges and universities. We work to empower students to lead and serve through STEM. To learn more about our approach and the benefits offered by our program, click here, and learn about ways to get involved with the program on our Volunteer page.
Contact Luke Chitwood with specific questions or to identify students you think are especially apt for the program. We are grateful to be a part of the Illinois Tech community, and appreciate how so many at the university positively impact our scholars.
