Woodrow Wilson Student Leadership Program

"No Man That Does Not See Visions Will Ever Realize Any High Hope or Undertake Any High Enterprise."      
                                                                                                                                                     - Woodrow Wilson

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is offering an exciting initiative for outstanding high school students who demonstrate leadership, integrity, and academic excellence.  Students will be selected from the public, private, and home school population.

Participants in this program will learn about the contributions made by Woodrow Wilson and will apply his principles as they assume leadership roles.  Students will be given the opportunity to improve personal skills which will benefit them as they apply for college and subsequent employment.  The program will conclude with a trip to Washington with a tour of the capitol.

Applicants must be entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grade, complete an application, and provide two letters of recommendation from teachers.  There is no charge for the program but participants will be responsible for personal expenses such as transportation to and from the library. We are committed to providing an invaluable opportunity to the students who are selected.
