In addition to serving as a leader in any number of our student organizations and
athletic teams, Randolph-Macon College has several signature leadership programs.
The Leadership Fellows Program - A multi-year program designed
to engage students in co-curricular learning during their tenure at Randolph-Macon
College. Randolph-Macon College Leadership Fellows may receive a Leadership Grant
that complements other forms of aid in recognition of their past accomplishments
and future campus involvement. Most Leadership Fellows will receive cumulative merit
aid that will meet or exceed half of their tuition.
Emerging Leader's Weekend - A summer pre-orientation program to
introduce Leadership Fellows to the leadership fellows program and the R-MC Community.
The Student Leadership Conference - An annual conference held on-campus
that introduces student leaders to various topics in student leadership and facilitates
collaboration and networking.
