Welcome to LEAD 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. You would need to complete one activity to satisfy one category 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 email@example.com.
