I-LEAD enhances the leadership skills of up-and-coming student leaders allowing these leaders to give back to their respective student organizations and to gain skills that will help them in their job search in the U.S or back home. I-LEAD students focus on self-awareness and learn more about their leadership style, strengths, conflict management style, and more. Program participants attend a non-credit, weekly seminar for the fall semester. International students who successfully complete the program receive a $500 scholarship to assist with their tuition and other education-related expenses.
