SGA Student Leadership Fellowship Application
The Saint Francis University Student Government Association (SGA) will award three (3) $1,000 fellowships to incoming first year students who have demonstrated a commitment to developing their leadership potential through areas such as community service, involvement in clubs and organizations, athletics, and student government. The purpose of this fellowship is to develop leadership skills and competencies, foster unique opportunities and experiences, and create an environment where these talents can be utilized to promote the values of SGA—Leadership, Service, and Community.
The distinction between a scholarship and fellowship are in that with a scholarship, the recipient has already met the criteria and receives the award without any further obligation. With a fellowship, the recipient must perform and comply within a set of expectations in order to continue to receive the award. Because the SGA intends for its award recipients to continue to develop as leaders on campus, this program is structured as a fellowship. As a fellowship program, recipients must meet specific criteria in order to maintain the award for each consecutive year of their undergraduate studies.
