The design of the Niswonger Scholarship and Leadership program requires an intense level of engagement on the part of the Scholars. They live on their respective campuses with a requirement of using their leadership skills. They are required to engage in significant service-learning experiences. The Scholars actively participate in face-to-face leadership training, building relationships and networks with their fellow Scholars. An important part of the leadership development involves significant travel both within and outside the country. In addition to travel experiences in which all Scholars participate, they are encouraged to, also, study abroad and engage in international service projects. COVID-19 has placed all these activities in jeopardy for the foreseeable future.
In lieu of selecting a new class of Scholars, we have set as our goal the care and support of our current 10 Niswonger Scholars. We will spend our time and attention personalizing their leadership development experience to the absolute best of our ability.
