HAYS — The Department of Leadership Studies at Fort Hays State University has selected its 2018-2019 scholars for the Voss Advanced Leadership Undergraduate Experience.
To complete the program, students will plan and implement a project in either civic and non-profit leadership, corporate leadership or leadership research. Mentors will coach students throughout the academic year. Scholars are awarded a $350 stipend each semester.
VALUE is a year-long, co-curricular experience designed to challenge and develop leadership skills in upperclassmen. The program has two objectives: 1) to teach students how to put ideas into action and implement, execute and transform a vision into reality; and 2) to promote teamwork and collaborative skills in order to be successful.
Applicants must be juniors or seniors in good academic standing during their time in the program who have completed the leadership studies certificate and are willing to commit themselves to a deep degree of scholarship and service. Faculty and staff can also make nominations.
Local scholar is Allison Muth, a sophomore majoring in organizational leadership from Great Bend, mentored by Laura Dougherty, director of operations at the FHSU Foundation.
