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 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 at Syracuse University. Scholarships are not awarded for summer study
  • Have a current FAFSA on file*
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (the average GPA of scholarship recipients for 2022-2023 is 3.4)

*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.
