About the Program

LEAD (Leading to Excellence in the Academic Domain) is a scholarship and support program for new students (freshmen) at Ursuline College who are the first in their family to attend college.  If admitted to the LEAD program, you will receive a LEAD advisor who will guide you throughout your first semester and you will participate in workshops and activities to foster your success. LEAD is co-facilitated by URSA (Ursuline Resources for Success in Academics) and the Office of Inclusion, Equity & Multicultural Affairs.


A $450.00 textbook voucher is awarded upon acceptance into LEAD.  If you complete the fall semester program you will be awarded another $450.00 textbook voucher for the spring semester of your first year.


The program is limited to the first twenty eligible students who apply for the program.
You must be a new freshman and a first generation college student.  This means that neither your parents nor siblings have earned a college degree.
You must be admitted to Ursuline College and you must complete the LEAD application.
