Emerging Leaders Endowment Call for Applicants- Fall 2013 – Spring 2014

Posted: March 29, 2013

An endowment to support select undergraduate and graduate students through a mentoring program with the College of Agricultural Sciences Deans during Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters.

Those selected will be exposed to executive level training and decision-making skills through an internship with one of the college’s executive leadership team.

The chosen students for the program will undergo a brief rotation with each of the College Leadership Team then select a Dean “mentor”.

Along with their respective Dean, recipients will select an academic credit-based project to complete during the mentorship period. Students will be provided a $1500 scholarship/semester if selected.   Additional support is available for related travel and/or project-based expenses.

Interested students must submit the following by April 25, 2013, to Dr. Tracy Hoover:

•    Letter of interest
•    Resume
•    Three letters of recommendation

First preference will be given to qualified students who demonstrate leadership qualities paralleling those exhibited by veterans of the US military, Ag Advocates, and officers of student clubs and organizations.   Please contact Dr. Tracy Hoover, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education – with any additional questions.
