The Emma G. Noe Scholarship was established in July 2005 to support students studying leadership through the Leadership Studies Program at West Virginia University. The awards are based on merit and can be used for enrichment opportunities within the framework of WVU credit courses that have a leadership focus.
The award, which will generally vary between $500 and $2500, may be applied toward tuition or may be used for related costs for the leadership enrichment opportunities proposed by students. Possible enrichment opportunities include, but are not limited to the following: participation in field trips, acceptance of internship on structured mentoring opportunities, attendance at workshops, research projects, public service activities/service learning projects, and traveling to professional meetings and conferences.
Awards granted each year are determined by a committee formed by the Director of Leadership Studies and are based on available funding and the quality and eligibility of student authored proposals.
In determining the recipients, the Emma Noe Scholarship Selection Committee considers:
Current scholarship performance in major and overall studies
Potential for development of leadership skills
Demonstrated interest in leadership
Applicants must be undergraduate students at West Virginia University. Applicants must have formally “declared” and be enrolled in the Leadership Studies Academic minor and have a cumulative minimum GPA of 2.5.
The application must be submitted prior to the start of the academic course/enrichment activity begins.
Applicants must submit an application form which can be downloaded from the Leadership Studies website.
The scholarships will be considered on a rolling basis.
Recipients will also be required to write an essay at the end of the award year upon completion of the leadership enrichment activity concerning their leadership experience.
