    by Anne Gregory | Jan 19, 2023
    The full-ride Multicultural Excellence in Leadership Scholarship deadline has been extended to Jan. 31.

    Do you know a first-year incoming student? Please share this with them and their family.

    Hear from last year's winner, Gillian Thompson, and how the scholarship has impacted her:

    "The scholarship has opened doors for me to experience opportunities that I may have never considered before. It has allowed me to be present and engaged on campus, free of the worries of how to pay for an education. The scholarship also allowed me to focus on areas where I want to pursue leadership and increased my involvement on campus in clubs and my major. And I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to advance my leadership acumen in the presence of other leaders on campus."
