Arthur J. Schmitt Future Leaders Scholarship Program

Scholarship Amount: Varies


Goodwin College of Business


The Goodwin College of Business custom-designed the Schmitt Future Leaders Scholarship Program to bring undergraduate students leading best practices in leadership. Each Schmitt scholar completes more than 20 hours of interactive learning in workshops, plus continuous mentoring throughout the academic year. Individuals and teams select, design, implement and evaluate a major service learning project to achieve their leadership goals, beyond current individual skill and leadership experience. The program culminates with a formal presentation to the Arthur J. Schmitt Foundation Board, Benedictine University Deans, faculty, academic advisors, and parents. Each Scholar subsequently receives an evaluation on this presentation from Goodwin College of Business faculty and program leaders. Scholars submit a reflective evaluation on their leadership development.
