Joining Service and Leadership
The Civic Leader Scholars Program at Emory & Henry College is a renewable, four-year scholarship for incoming first-year and transfer undergraduate students. In addition to receiving financial aid, Civic Leader Scholars will participate in on-going civic engagement projects, community-building, reflections, trainings, and leadership development.
Civic Leadership Retreat
Held each fall for students at Emory & Henry College, this retreat gives students, faculty, and staff the chance to build community and begin developing the skills necessary to be effective leaders in their civic work. The retreat is off campus and gives new students a great opportunity to learn more about the surrounding region and the communities in which we serve.
Each year, Scholars will be awarded a renewable scholarship. In order to maintain the scholarship, Scholars must maintain a 3.0 grade point average, attend the annual Civic Leadership Retreat, and demonstrate active participation in community projects and on-campus leadership.
