The Leadership Academy is an academically focused summer program for minority and Twenty-First Century Scholar students who are graduating from high school and plan on attending IU South Bend in the Fall. Participating students will complete two classes over a six-week period in the summer. Each class prepares students for success and leadership as they enter their First Year Experience at IU South Bend.
Invest YOUR time and effort, and WE invest in your future!
College is expensive and it requires a commitment of both time and effort. Participants receive a scholarship that pays 100% of the tuition and required fees for the TWO elective college courses they will take during the academy. Textbooks, notebooks, supplies, and even a backpack are also provided! In exchange, students are required to attend classes four days a week (Monday - Thursday) beginning on June 25th and concluding on August 13th. A typical academy day runs from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.
