The scholarship is intended for a student leader who in many ways is positively benefitting the community of Emory University.

Award

One administrator will serve as the main mentor for the student and the student will meet with this administrator bi-monthly. Also the other members of the selection committee will continue to aid the student in cultivating their leadership skills throughout their time at Emory.
