It pays to be a leader. Created in 2007 by the Emory Alumni Board (EAB), the scholarship recognizes students who are doing their part to improve the community.  The EAB is seeking both heralded and unheralded students who have demonstrated a deep commitment to serving the community. Past accomplishments and current service will be considered. This scholarship will be a one-time award to one or more undergraduate and one or more graduate students in the amount of $7,000. Scholarship funds may not be used retroactively.

To be considered for the Emory Alumni Board Leadership Scholarship, students must submit a completed application and letter of recommendation. Supplementary materials may be added, if applicable. The required letter of recommendation must be submitted by a faculty member at Emory or a professional in your community who can speak to your demonstrated leadership.
