West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s Leadership Fellows program provides academic and financial support for students who display exceptional leadership potential. Leadership Fellows will be fully trained by professional members of campus and our community to participate and lead volunteer service, engage with all members of society, and plan a successful future career in the Mid-Ohio Valley and beyond.

Participating students receive a full tuition, four-year scholarship for their fall and spring semesters. Successful students in their last semester will receive a stipend for a professional internship placement. Fellows will be required to receive leadership and success training, earn an academic certificate in advanced leadership, and maintain full time enrollment until graduation. They will also participate in a documented volunteer service opportunity each semester. Fellows must maintain a 3.0 while in college.
