PREPARED TO SERVE AS A LEADER AT BERRY — AND AFTER GRADUATION

If you thrive as leader with a deep desire to serve in this capacity on campus, the Leadership Fellows Scholarship offers training and opportunities for you to learn and grow in this role. Structured around current leadership models and designed to increase your leadership knowledge and capacities, the program cultivates a community of leaders and peer mentors. You’ll be encouraged to:

  • Actively pursue leadership opportunities on campus
  • Seek out the means to improve campus organizations and teams
  • Facilitate leadership development of peers
  • Pursue leadership opportunities in your community after graduation 

Leadership Fellows are typically involved as:

  • Members of the Student Government Association
  • Class officers
  • First-year mentors
  • SOAR leaders
  • Resident assistants
  • Participants in Berry College Volunteer Services
  • Student supervisors in the LifeWorks program, including Berry College Student Enterprises
  • President of organizations such as the Vikettes Dance Troupe, Athletes Bettering the Community, Model UN, Honors Student Union, Young Life and Campus Outreach

HOW DOES YOUR PARTICIPATION ADD VALUE TO A BERRY COLLEGE EDUCATION? 

You’ll benefit from the program while living on campus, preparing for your career or graduate school and pursuing personal and professional goals after graduation because of:

  • Individual leadership development through curriculum and community-building activities
  • Ongoing professional development activities and preparation for your life and a successful career after Berry
  • A community of campus leaders with access to an alumni network
  • A network of mentors — from staff and peers to alumni — who will offer advice and letters of recommendation during and after college

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?

The Leadership Fellows Scholarship is a merit-based program. The scholarship increases incrementally: first year/$3,000, second year/$4,000, third year/$5,000 and fourth year/$6,000. To be considered, you must have a track record of:

  • Significant leadership experience with organizations, teams and/or projects in high school or with community organizations (We look for major leadership positions held, not just involvement in multiple activities.)
  • Demonstrated commitment, initiative and teamwork through leadership experiences
  • General understanding of what it means to be a leader in one’s community

WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT ASKED OF YOU?

  • Participation in program activities, class meetings, readings and reflections (three to five hours per week)
  • Initiative demonstrated through involvement in the LifeWorks program and campus leadership as well as facilitation of campus leadership programs
  • Visibility on campus as a resident engaged in campus life and service
  • Demonstration of integrity, good campus citizenship and mentoring of others
