Gannon University is proud to honor and encourage leaders of tomorrow through the Diversity Service and Leadership award. This presentation competition provides minority students from multicultural backgrounds the possibility to showcase their service and leadership in their community; and one student will be awarded a FULL TUITION AWARD!! In addition, all students who participate will have their merit award increased.
During the competition you must be prepared to present in a 5-7 minute time frame an original creation that shares how you have demonstrated service and/or leadership in your community or why you feel that service is important. Submissions may include, but are not limited to, a photo, a drawing, poem, collage, etc. In addition, you should be able to briefly explain how your submission demonstrates your service and leadership. Submissions will be judged on creativity, originality, relevance, presentation and explanation.
Following a short interview with our panel of judges, you will have the opportunity to tour campus and get answers to your questions about enrollment and financial aid. Your stay will conclude with our Award Luncheon, where you and your parents will get to mix and mingle with Gannon faculty, staff and current students.
For questions about eligibility or other rules and guidelines, please contact Pat Washington in the Office of Admissions at 814-871-7751.
Dress nice, but comfortable. Keep in mind that you will be presenting to and interviewing with a panel comprised of Gannon faculty, staff and administration.
Yes, absolutely. In addition to the actual competition itself, we have planned activities that will involve various Gannon faculty, students and staff that will share information about our academic and student life programs. Activities such as campus tours and the Scholarship Luncheon/Dinner for example.
Just be you. Your panel of judges wants to get to know you; therefore the answers to the questions can be found within yourself.
We will award one full tuition award. Each additional participant will receive an increase in their merit award, however.
We will notify all winners by phone on or before April 20, 2015.
“I have been exposed to a lot of cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities and that has helped me to grow and change and make really good connections.”
“All my parents wanted for me in life was for me to succeed and I am doing that now.”
“In High School I was student leader in several delegations to Model United Nations, head of the Speech club and several opportunities to lead on the football field. All of this carried over at Gannon as I felt the urge to become a student leader and started taking active role in the community with whatever I could do.”
