The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is introducing an exciting new initiative—the Woodrow Wilson Student Leadership Program. Aimed at rising high school juniors and seniors the program seeks to build leadership skills and an interest in global policymaking.
Participants in this program will learn about the contributions made by Woodrow Wilson in the hopes that they will apply his principles as they assume leadership roles within their schools and communities. Students will be given the opportunity to build their credentials and their skillsets as young leaders by assuming responsibility in a living history project to the presented at the museum, which will benefit them as they apply for college and subsequent employment. Additionally, students will be given the chance to experience the history of policy-making first hand through a personal tour of the US Capitol in Washington, DC.
This program looks to enrich outstanding high school students who demonstrate leadership, integrity, and academic excellence. Applicants must be entering the 11th or 12th grade, verify a minimum GPA of 3.0, complete an online application and provide a school transcript with two letters of recommendation. Participants will be selected based on leadership roles, academic standing, references, and personal interview. There is no charge for the program; however, the participant will be responsible for personal expenses such as transportation to and from the library.
We are committed to providing an invaluable opportunity to the sixteen students who are selected. For more information on the program contact the museum educator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 540-885-0897 ext 110. To visit the online application please click here.
