What the Scholarship Covers

If I am selected as a Leading Change Scholar, what would be expected of me?

During the summer before you officially start your journey with us, Leading Change Scholars are required to participate in a Leading Change - Africa sponsored Scholars Weekend in Burkina Faso. In addition, Leading Change - Africa expects Leading Change Scholars to communicate and work closely with their designated Leading Change - Africa educational adviser. Lastly, the Leading Change - Africa also expects Leading Change Scholars to:
• Maintain a strong academic record (cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better) while taking an appropriately challenging course load.
• Act with honesty and personal integrity.
• Demonstrate character and leadership.
• Be concerned about and engaged in their community.
• Maintain a good disciplinary record.
• Work cooperatively with Leading Change - Africa staff.
• These responsibilities are outlined in a Scholar Agreement, which each selected scholar is required to sign.

How will I receive my scholarship?

Scholarship amounts are sent directly to your school. If a stipend is included as a portion of your scholarship, the school will release the funds to you.
