There’s Still Time to Apply to the Leadership Academy Scholarship!

The Leadership Academy Scholarship deadline is coming up on Monday, February 14 and there’s still time to apply.  Current full-time first- and second-year students, or third-year architecture students with a 3.0 cumulative GPA are eligible to apply.

The Leadership Academy Scholarship is a distinguished and prestigious award given to the top applicants to the university that demonstrate exceptional leadership potential. Additional benefits to Leadership Academy Scholarship recipients include exclusive leadership opportunities on campus and in the Chicago area, networking luncheons and dinners, experiential leadership development and training, and social bonding with fellow Leadership Academy Scholars. Leadership Academy Scholars will also receive a certificate in leadership studies upon successful completion of the academy’s programs and activities.

Please follow the steps outlined below to apply for the Leadership Academy scholarship:

1. Current students must complete and submit the scholarship application no later than February 14, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. CT.
2. Ask the faculty/staff member of your choice to submit a nomination form by February 22, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. CT, making sure to provide the faculty member with a copy of your completed application.
3. Leadership Academy staff will contact you to schedule your Leadership Experience for Assessment and Development (LEAD) appointment. Center for Research and Service staff will conduct LEAD sessions and notify participants of scholarship awards.
4. Center for Research and Service staff will provide all participants with feedback from their LEAD session.

Scholarship awards will be announced during the month of April. Also, during April, all finalists who participated in the LEAD process will be offered feedback regarding their performances through written reports and group feedback sessions. The focus of this feedback will be on professional growth and career development.

Finally, prior to the summer break, Leadership Academy scholars will be invited to attend an orientation session and leadership development workshop to kick off their formal involvement in the Leadership Academy. Feedback regarding scholars’ performance in the LEAD process will also be incorporated into this development experience.
