The program offers eligible students leadership skills and mentorship by Syracuse University alumni and friends, in addition to a monetary scholarship. Our scholars are given an opportunity to enhance their Syracuse University education. We provide encouragement, motivation, and support to students from all disciplines.

We are looking for students with a strong interest in volunteering, leadership training, and joining a supportive community of scholars.

To be eligible for the program, you must:

  • Be enrolled full-time on the main campus of Syracuse University. Scholarships are not awarded for part-time or summer study
  • Have a current FAFSA on file*
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (the average GPA of scholarship recipients for 2018-19 is 3.5)

*Scholarships are based on need. In other words, you must have a need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid (based on your FAFSA). Once need is determined, awards are made based on academic merit.

All fields are required unless otherwise specified.
