Leadership Grant

Leaders Wanted

In addition to merit scholarships (which can be up to $21,000 per year), a Leadership Grant is awarded to matriculating, full-time freshmen and transfer students for fall 2017 who have demonstrated their leadership abilities through prior high school, college, and community experiences. The grant is for varying amounts up to $3,000 per year and will be renewed if the recipient participates in ongoing leadership activities at Western New England University. All leadership experiences, with the exception of athletic ability or participation, will be considered.

Completed applications must be received by February 13, 2017. Those submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
To be considered for a Western New England University Leadership Grant, a student must:
  • Apply.
  • Submit a summary of one leadership experience with your application. This should be submitted as a typewritten, double-spaced document (maximum of 150 words), explaining what you have learned from this experience.
  • Submit one letter of reference from a non-family member who can speak to the quality of your participation in a leadership role.
