Region VII offers scholarships that help advance professionals and
students through participation in educational events. The region will be
accepting application for these scholarships later this year.
Every year, Region VII selects a number of students, whether undergraduate or graduate, for a scholarship to attend the Institute for Leadership Education and Development (I-LEAD®), ACUI's premier student program. Applicants are required to submit an essay, proof of academic good standing, and at least one letter of support. Additionally, the applicant must acknowledge that fees not covered by program registration (travel/transportation) are at cost to the host institution or individual.
The personal essay should address each of the following prompts:
- Describe yourself
- Why would you like to attend I-LEAD®?
- How will you benefit from attendance at the program?
- What do you hope to learn and bring back to your campus?
