Catawba Valley Community College is dedicated to providing quality educational programs for the total community. Because trained, dedicated leaders are so crucial to the future of our democratic society, the CVCC Foundation, Inc., established the Emerging Leaders Scholarship to enable and encourage students to develop their leadership potential. The future rests with people who are prepared to lead and to serve.
The Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program recognizes students who are presently leaders in their school/community and/or demonstrate potential for leadership.
The scholarship will pay for tuition and fees for an academic year (Fall and Spring semesters). The recipient may apply for the award for a second year. Factors to be considered will be academic record, participation in the monthly seminars, and involvement in other school/community activities.
Student recipients must accept the commitment to attend a monthly leadership seminar through the CVCC Rotaract Club. These seminars will be offered on a set date each month. At each seminar, a leader from government, education, or the community will address the student group. Monthly programs may include the following topics:
Scholarship recipients will be asked to serve in leadership roles and volunteer for a specific number of hours to help with various events on or off the campus. Other opportunities for student participation may be provided.
Applicants will be asked to complete the Catawba Valley Community College Foundation, Inc. Scholarship Application form. Upon completion of the scholarship form, the student must talk with his or her Guidance Counselor regarding interest in the Emerging Leaders program. The Guidance Counselor will provide the student with an Emerging Leaders Application. Upon receipt of the aforementioned, Guidance Counselors are asked to select the Emerging Leader that will represent their high school for an interview with the Emerging Leaders Scholarship Committee.
