NYU Washington, DC, Global Leadership Scholars Program

Program is now accepting nominations and applications for fall 2017.

This program is a partnership between the NYU Leadership Initiative and the Office of Global Programs. It offers a unique opportunity for select NYU undergraduates to interact with leaders from a variety of fields, to pursue experiential learning opportunities in DC, and to study global leadership with a diverse cohort of students from throughout the University. Leadership Scholars take an intensive leadership course and choose from the rich curricular offerings at our global academic center in D.C. In addition to any regular financial aid that they may receive, Leadership Scholars are also eligible to receive a further need-based leadership grant to support their participation in this program.
