What is the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)?
The VCU Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a selective one-year scholarship program that recognizes and supports the development and engagement of emerging student leaders at the university. Spaces in the Emerging Leaders Program are granted to 44 highly-qualified incoming first-year students from Virginia.
Selected ELP students will take part in a first-year leadership experience through curricular and co-curricular programs that aim to develop young leaders. The program will match a first-year student with a second-year mentor who will guide them throughout their first-year at VCU and throughout their ELP leadership experience.
But most importantly, the Emerging Leaders Program becomes a tight-knit family of students who live, learn, and grow together and helps kick starts their journey to leadership and success at VCU and beyond!
