Wilson Leaders are diverse in their disciplines, political views, approaches to problem-solving, leadership styles, and career plans. Applicants should be interested in improving the world around them, and in actively participating in a problem that invests in their ability to do so. Our program develops Wilson Leaders’ skills, exposes them to new ideas, and builds a community that will continue to grow.
Applicants for both the undergraduate and graduate award should be willing and able to invest at least 15 hours/month in the program from September to November and January to March.

Applications for the graduate Wilson Leadership Scholar Awards must be received at email@example.com by 11:59 p.m. EST on March 30, 2020, with optional nomination forms due February 24, 2020.
"I've always been a strong, hardworking student, but my grades would not put me in a position to receive academic awards. This one was different: it wasn’t necessarily looking for a student with perfect grades, but for leadership potential, and I felt like that was me. I knew that if I had the chance, this opportunity could change my life."
— Andrew Richards, Wilson Leader Alumnus
