The Science of Leadership program, in its fourth year, engages students in existing leadership roles to further develop the skills necessary to become life-long leaders. The program seeks to foster students’ skills related to critical thinking, problem solving, communication, planning and organization.
Any student who serves as an officer in an official NDSCS student organization is eligible to apply and, if selected, participate in the Science of Leadership program and receive a $3,000 scholarship. The scholarships were made possible through a generous gift from Edson and Margaret Larson foundation, the North Dakota Higher Education Challenge Grant and the NDSCS Alumni/Foundation.
The program develops students’ leadership skills through an interactive and engaging leadership curriculum, provides experiential leadership learning opportunities and provides small-group mentoring from NDSCS professional staff members.
