 Multicultural Leadership Team Scholarship

The Multicultural Leadership Team was established in 1991 for the purpose of developing an effective group of multiracial and multicultural student leaders that articulates the vision for a multicultural organization. MLT students are committed to enhancing cultural diversity and improving race relations locally, nationally, and internationally. Members of the Team participate in a multicultural leadership development program that equips, challenges, and empowers them to demonstrate their commitment to cultural and racial diversity by helping to prepare others to live, learn, work, and succeed in a pluralistic society.

Applicants for this scholarship must be full-time, undergraduate, degree-seeking Shepherd University students who demonstrate leadership qualities and a commitment to improving race relations, enhancing cultural diversity, and promoting multiculturalism.

The Scholars Program

The Scholars Program at Shepherd University is designed for high-performing upper-class and transfer students who desire an Honors education but are not able to complete the full four-year Honors Program. Like the four-year program, the two-year Scholars Program provides a varied and stimulating curriculum to students who have demonstrated the ability and willingness to engage in intellectual challenges. Students must apply for admission to the Scholars Program, and may be considered for scholarships if admitted to the program. Visit the Scholars page for more information.
