Accepting a leadership scholarship commits a student to participate in Washburn’s Leadership Institute, and is more than just an award-based scholarship.  Annual renewal of a leadership scholarship is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, making appropriate annual progress toward the Leadership Minor or Leadership Studies Certificate, and meeting performance and program participation criteria as determined by the Institute Director.  Eligibility requirements and scholarship responsibilities should be understood before applying for an award. These requirements and responsibilities are assessed and revised annually as appropriate. Please review the Leadership Scholarship Acceptance Form.
