Being a Scholar

Leadership Scholars are required to be residential students each semester they receive the scholarship. In addition, they are required to a minimum of two leadership positions in campus organizations, maintain a 2.5 GPA, and remain in good social standing throughout their career as a Leadership. Leadership Scholars are also required to attend Chowan Scholarship Days held during the academic year while receiving the Leadership Scholarship. 

Deans and Trustee Scholars are expected to maintain steady involvement in multiple campus organizations or activities (including athletics), maintain satisfactory academic progress, and remain in good social standing throughout their career as a Chowan Scholar.
