Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program Applications Open Now

 

 

Established in 2010 as the Office of Student Life’s signature leadership development experience, the Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program (BLF) provides transformative experiences which empower undergraduate students to challenge themselves to continuously improve, to identify their place within the world, and to mindfully engage in their post-graduate pursuits.

Buckeye Leadership Fellows spend two-years in a select, interdisciplinary cohort, engaging in rigorous personal, professional, and leadership development activities. The experiential program exposes students to a range of public and private industries and encourages them to think differently about how to apply their talents and studies in a practical way. Interested students can apply to the program during their sophomore year.

The Office of Student Life Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program (BLF) is accepting applications for prospective fellows for the 2018-20 class. Interested students may apply during their sophomore year or junior year.  Applications are due Friday (10/6) at 11:59 p.m.

*BLF is designed for students who are within their second year on a college or university campus upon entrance into the program. Students in their third year, with a graduation date no earlier than December 2019, are eligible to apply.

Are you interested in building your leadership skills? The LeaderShape Program at Ohio State will be held August 14-19 and will challenge participants to lead with integrity.

The LeaderShape Institute is the flagship program from the national organization LeaderShape, Inc.  The six day program includes dialogue and interactive self-discovery in a supportive learning community. The goal is to develop lifelong leadership skills, create a vision for the future, and to be able to lead with integrity.  Through utilizing interactive program methods rather than classroom lectures, everyone becomes a teacher and a learner. Students get to discover what they want to do and who they want to be.

 

This program is supported through the Office of Student Life and Coca-Cola and there is no cost to attend.  More information about this opportunity is available on both the Ohio Union’s and Leadershape’s websites.
