Intercultural Leadership, Education, and Development Fellowship Program

What is the Intercultural Leadership, Education and Development Fellowship Program?

The Fellowship program provides support for talented first-generation students to build on the leadership skills they are already demonstrating within their high schools and home communities. Unique to CSB/SJU, Intercultural Leadership, Education and Development is a program of first-generation college students from many different backgrounds. Scholars:

  • Represent many cultures, races and ethnicities
  • Promote equality, and the ideas of diversity and civic stewardship
  • Aspire to be academic leaders in college
  • Attend national and international leadership conferences

Scholars benefit financially from a $10,000 per year scholarship, personal mentoring, student workshops and enhanced campus experiences that support emerging leaders.
