Leadership Scholarship

It pays to be a leader. Created in 2007 by the Emory Alumni Board (EAB), the scholarship recognizes students who are doing their part to improve the community. Do you know any student leaders who make a positive impact in the arts or sciences, academic or extracurricular pursuits, or through mentorship, social outreach, or other avenues? If so, the EAB might want to recognize their efforts by paying it forward.

The scholarship is awarded to at least one full-time undergraduate and at least one full-time graduate student. To be eligible, undergraduate applicants must have completed a minimum of two semesters at Emory or Oxford, and graduate applicants must have completed one semester at Emory before the application deadline. Scholarship selection is based on a student's merit, and financial aid will be strongly considered.

Please note that for scholarship eligibility applicants must be graduating from either an Emory undergraduate or graduate school after January 1, 2022. Scholarship funds may not be used retroactively.
