The Presidential Leadership Scholarship is the largest and most premier freshmen scholarship that Tabor College has to offer, valued at $16,000. The scholarship recognizes students who have provided leadership in academics, school activities and in their communities throughout high school. Along with this, the program is intended for students to be able to carry on these positive characteristics into their college career as they make lifelong contributions to campus life, strive in academics and aspire to make a difference in the world.

“Leadership development is an experience that begins with ideas, involves action, requires reflection and builds relationships,” said President Jules Glanzer. “Students selected will participate in a four year leadership development laboratory where they will receive a degree in their chosen field and participate in co-curricular activities.”

Students are welcome to apply if the following criteria are met: admittance to Tabor College, minimum high school GPA of 3.3 and a minimum ACT composite score of 23 or a combined SAT critical reading/math score of 1070. Applicants are required to turn in an application which can be found on www., along with a resume and an example of previous academic work.

“We strongly encourage all students to apply who desire to develop their leadership potential,” said Lee Waldron, director of admissions. “This is a great opportunity to meet others and grow in all areas of life.” Applicants will be reviewed and finalists will be invited to campus for the final selection process on Nov. 4 and 5, 2012. Individuals will make a public presentation, have a personal interview, complete a writing exercise and take part in a group problem-solving activity.

The application packet deadline is Oct. 1, 2012 by 5 p.m. Finalists will be notified on or before Oct. 12, 2012, with invitations extended for the on-campus part of the selection process.
