Roberts Fellowship Program

The Roberts Fellowship Program funds six credits of advanced academic course work and other unique experiences for a select group of undergraduate students who have demonstrated a high level of academic accomplishment and commitment to campus and/or community service. The purpose of this scholarship program is to develop Fellows’ potential for leadership and for distinguished achievement in their subsequent careers. Roberts Fellowship course work consists of two 3-credit seminars, one each in the Fall and Winter semesters, culminating in an international travel experience. The Roberts Fellowship also provides regular opportunities to meet and talk with visiting leaders in business, political life, education, the arts, and many other areas.

The first academic seminar is “Philosophical/Historical Leaders,” which examines models of leadership through the study of influential men and women, as well as theories about leadership, drawn from a range of sources and traditions. The second is “Contemporary Issues in Leadership,” which combines extensive practical case study analysis of organizational leadership problems with leadership issues in a broad, international context. The “Contemporary Issues” seminar culminates in an international travel experience. Admission to the Roberts Fellowship is extremely competitive.
