Being a part of the Program extends to more than just the financial aspect. It provides
membership in a unique community of peers who will constantly challenge you to perform at your best.
It facilitates opportunities to develop and grow in ways I could never have imagined
when I was in high school.
It provides access to two world-class universities with the opportunity to explore your interests and passions without significant financial pressure in addition to significant programming to help you accelerate your development as a leader.
Throughout the Program there were significant challenges – moving overseas for four years
at 17 was not completely smooth! Aside from logistical challenges, the Program pushes you
to step outside your comfort zone and encourages you to reflect on your development.
This can be challenging – especially when it comes to taking feedback on board and growing – but you are surrounded by people invested in your growth and development and with an incredible group of fellow Scholars, so the journey isn’t at all lonely
