Leadership Advancement Scholarship Program

Each year, around 2,000 high school seniors apply to be a part of the Leadership Advancement Scholarship Program (LAS) at Central Michigan University. This is a 4-year scholarship worth a total of $8,000. LAS provides students with a 4-year cohort experience that requires students to take leadership courses together, attend leadership conferences, reside in the same residence hall freshman year, gain a sophomore mentor, go on service trips, and get involved on CMU’s campus. There is no other program like this in the country.

In order to be accepted into the program, students must have a variety of well-rounded leadership and volunteer experience, go through an interview process, and be observed through leadership scenarios on the scholarship competition day.  At the end of the process, about 40-50 students are accepted into the program.

Being a Leadership Advancement Scholar has shaped my college experience in the best way possible. It has challenged me as a leader, allowed me to meet some of my very best friends, and has provided me a strong foundation for my college career. I would not be the same person without this program.
