• Leadership Studies Program Admission

    Students interested in pursuing a minor in Leadership Studies (LDSP) should contact the program director. The minor is open to students of all majors and leadership courses can now be taken as electives--for those not interested in earning the minor.

    A number of $1,500/year academic scholarships are available to students pursuing minors in Leadership Studies. Scholarships are typically awarded in the Spring semester of each year and are renewable for up to four years. Eligibility requirements are described on the Policies page of this website. Please inquire with the program director for scholarship availability.

    The scholarship application form can be downloaded from this site using the link on the left side of this page. Fill it out and send it in!

    Again, the HSU Leadership Studies Program is an innovative and truly unique program. It draws on expertise and insight from a wide variety of academic fields and in doing so creates a rare combination of experiences that would be hard to find in any other single academic program.

    Thanks for looking through the website. We hope to see you in our classes!
