The Diversity Leadership Award is a four-year, full-tuition scholarship awarded to students with the greatest potential for leadership in creating a diverse community. Candidates for the scholarship are evaluated based on the information in their admission and financial aid applications; no additional application is required. Students who are considered have demonstrated leadership in bridging differences and in building inclusive communities across individual and intersecting identities, such as race, ethnicity, religion, social class, nationality, (dis)ability, sexual preference, and gender expression.Watch this video to learn more.
