LEAD Medallion Scholars

 

 

The LEAD Medallion Scholars program recognizes undergraduate students in good standing who have excelled within and beyond the classroom. In order to earn a medallion, recipients will have demonstrated Leadership, Engagement, Application and Discovery during their time in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Windsor. 

  • Leadership through mentorship, peer-to-peer interaction/support, and campus involvement.
  • Engagement through community service learning, studying abroad, and other planning and outreach activities. 
  • Application through internship, practicum, or other hands-on activities related to the student's field of study.
  • Discovery through undergraduate research, publications, or creative pursuits.

Through the LEAD Medallion Scholars, you can receive either a bronze, silver or gold medal based on how many of the LEAD categories you completed. Each activity can only count towards one area of LEAD. For a course to be considered, you must have obtained a minimum of a 70% in that course. 

If you have any questions relating to the LEAD Medallion Scholars program, please email the Student Experience Coordinator at fahssleadscholars@uwindsor.ca.
