  McKendree Leadership Event

(Check which one you are eligible to receive.)

The events will consist of two 15 minute interviews with faculty, staff, or alumni and a writing essay. Don't worry - it won't be scary! You will also have an opportunity to talk with various members of the McKendree community and tour campus. Faculty members, as well as staff members from various offices, will be available to answer questions. You will be able to learn more about our Honor's Program, Study Abroad opportunities, and Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service, among other things.

McKendree Leadership Awards can be paired with either the Presidential or Honor's Scholarship and are renewable each year you reside in McKendree University housing. 

We can't wait to see you on campus in January! To be considered for a Leadership Scholarship, all application materials need to be submitted prior to the Leadership Event weekend. Please speak with your admission counselor if you have any questions about the Leadership Event.
