The Johnson Scholars Development Funds
After their first year, Johnson Scholars are eligible to use their $7,500 leadership development funds to create self-tailored enrichment experiences designed to enhance learning, cultivate leadership, and build ethical decision-making skills. Experiences may include internships, independent research, attending conferences and workshops and cultural immersion travel.
In 2017, one fifth-year senior, five rising seniors, seven rising juniors, and two rising sophomore Johnson Scholars were awarded funding to use toward leadership projects.
