Who We Are

WHO WE ARE:

 A selective leadership cohort and major scholarship program for students with demonstrated leadership ability.

The Leadership Fellows program is designed to advance and support students’ understanding and demonstration of servant leadership within the Eastern community and the global community at large. The program aims to prepare students for purposeful cultural integration as productive innovators and leaders; to commit and engage in addressing current societal problems and to influence the world through a thoughtful commitment to Christian character and behavioral integrity.

Leadership Fellows Grants are available to select students who have demonstrated leadership potential through high school, church or community activities, as well as academic achievement.  Admissions will award multiple students for the Leadership Grant ($1,000 per year) for the duration of their time at Eastern (up to 4-years).  Students who receive the Leadership Grant have a special opportunity to apply for the Leadership Fellows Program where their will participate in a selective cohort model of 20 students.  Students in the Leadership Fellows Program (or LFP) will receive an additional scholarship of $1,000 per their time in the program.

This cohort model involves a specific first-year orientation and supports students’ growth as leaders through a comprehensive leadership curriculum, workshops, leadership forums, mentoring, and experiential learning experiences.
