Learn, Lead and Serve Program
Learn, Lead, and Serve awards are given to those students whose projects explore connections among disciplines and whose work strengthens community through leadership and service. Students who receive Learn, Lead, and Serve Awards conduct individual or small-group projects under the mentorship of a faculty member, and they are expected to present their research findings in a public context. Supported by an anonymous donor and grants from the Levin Foundation, the McGregor Fund, and the Wallace Foundation, the program enables students to pursue special projects that connect academic education with experiential learning and exploration of service opportunities.
Learn, Lead, and Serve Program applicants are also eligible for a new student award, begun in 2007, which recognizes the best student project that unites research, leadership, and service in an international setting. The International Learn, Lead, and Serve Award is endowed in honor of extraordinary past recipients of Learn, Lead, and Serve grants.
