Youth Leadership Conferences
Mason is excited to partner with the following student leadership conferences to offer outstanding high school and university scholars the opportunity to participate in the following experiences for elective college credit.
- Envision Career & Leadership Programs
- Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Program (HOBY)
- Washington Journalism and Media Conference
- Washington Youth Summit on the Environment
These programs have been approved by our faculty, and students who qualify can receive college credit for “Special Topics in Leadership.” Scholars enrolled in 4- to 8-day programs earn one (1) college credit, while programs that run 9 days or longer are eligible for two (2) college credits. This is elective Mason credit and generally transfers to other four-year colleges and universities, but we recommend that students and parents check with the college/university they are applying to or attending if they are interested in how the credit would apply.
How are students selected?
Students are selected to represent their school and state through our academic partnerships. Nominations may be made by high school educators or students are identified by George Mason University through information we receive about students interests and/or academic ability through college entrance exams, or through data from NRCCUA (National Research Center for College and University Administrators), which conduct high school interest/career surveys. Educators are invited to fill out a nomination form for any of our student leadership opportunities and students will be contacted to confirm their nomination.
How are students evaluated?
The course, Special Topics in Leadership is a “Pass/Fail” course and students are evaluated based on their experiential learning opportunities throughout the week. Conference faculty will monitor their active participation in simulations, contributions to discussions and demonstration of leadership and critical thinking skills in group and individual settings. Students will receive feedback on their progress throughout the conference.
How do I enroll in Mason college credit?
Scholars must “opt in” and apply for the elective credit by contacting the conference Office of Admissions and completing the online enrollment application, as well as answering the required questions on the Student Information Form. This must be done no later than the end of the second day of the program session. Students enrolling for credit must be capable of doing college-level work and have completed the 9th grade at the time of the program. Students are asked to provide a self-reported GPA and complete the required questions and student leadership essay prior to conference participation. Tuition is $100.00 for one (1) credit and $200.00 for two (2) credits. Payment will be made to the specific conference. Students who do not meet the requirements for college credit will be refunded the credit tuition amount
Torch Scholars have the power to change the world.
Continuing Northeastern’s century-old commitment to educational opportunity, the Torch Scholars Program is a bold and innovative initiative that provides students with the opportunity to explore their passions and expand their global horizons. The program’s nomination and holistic review process identifies bright students from across the country who have already succeeded against the odds, but who have not yet reached their full academic potential.
Torch is dedicated to supporting these talented, first-generation college students through an extensive full-scholarship program that includes:
- a comprehensive summer immersion program,
- intensive academic planning and assessments,
- in-depth peer and professional mentoring,
- and a wide array of social events that foster group identity and camaraderie.
The program is simply unparalleled in its support for first-generation students from diverse backgrounds. Much more than a scholarship, Torch is a comprehensive model for access, retention, and achievement.
Torch Scholars have a drive to succeed—for their families and for themselves—and exhibit a universal commitment to giving back, completing 100 hours of service each academic year. Our scholars possess the ability and the will to succeed—Torch transforms them into leaders by empowering them to put those qualities into action.
EACH YEAR, NEARLY 500 NOMINEES FROM ACROSS THE UNITED STATES VIE FOR 10 TORCH SCHOLARSHIPS.
Torch looks to guidance counselors, teachers, mentors, clergy, and community workers to find deserving Torch Scholars.
Torch Nominators are non-family members—adults and professionals in or out of the school setting who know the student on a personal level. Nominators should be prepared to answer questions about the candidate’s family obligations, motivation, and emotional readiness for college. Please take a moment to think about the promising young people in your life who might benefit from the Torch Scholars Program. You may nominate more than one student in the same academic year.
We’re glad that you are considering nominating a student for Torch. You can nominate a student here.
