Leadership can take on many different forms and appear in different types of settings. Therefore, Whittier seeks applications from students who have demonstrated Whittier College values (community, communication, cultural perspective, and connections) through leadership in their school, community, jobs/internships, clubs/organizations, or religious communities.
The Leadership Scholarship is renewable for four years. Recipients will complete a minimum of eight hours of leadership involvement, from pre-arranged options, each year they're at Whittier in order to maintain their scholarship.
The Leadership Scholarship has two application deadlines: Early Action on January 14 and Regular Decision on March 4.
Students who are selected to move on to the interview portion will be notified by email in February for Early Action and March/April for Regular Decision.
Early Action applicants selected for the Leadership Scholarship will be notified via email in March 2022. Regular Decision applicants will be notified in April 2022.
Applications will open on November 1.
Email email@example.com for questions or concerns.
Discuss someone that has influenced your leadership. What role did they play in your leadership style? How do you plan to lead at Whittier College?
The selection committee encourages applicants to be authentic in their answer and let their personal voice come through. Essays must be one page in length, single space, 500 words max.
