Barnard Student Life Leadership Development Grant (SLDG)
Thank you for your interest in the Student Life Leadership Development Grant! Each semester Barnard Student Life sets aside a portion of financial resources to assist Barnard students who wish to pursue individual or group leadership development opportunities through conference/workshop attendance. For consideration, an application must meet the following requirements:
*Only Barnard students (in good standing) are eligible to apply.
*The leadership experience must directly relate or contribute to the personal development of the Barnard student(s) who attend.
*The SLDG may not be used to fund research or academic programs/conferences.
*Strong preference will be given to applications which highlight how the knowledge gained will be applied on campus.
*All Leadership Development Grant applications must be received at least 4 weeks before the conference/workshop is scheduled to take place.
*Due to fund limitations, only requests for domestic travel opportunities can be considered.
Please be aware applications will be reviewed on a biweekly basis so we encourage students to apply at least two weeks prior to the event. You will be notified by a staff member in Student Life about the status of your application.
