Blouin Global Scholars & Leaders in Social Justice

Most universities prepare you to change the world after graduation. At Walsh University, we say WHY WAIT?

Walsh University offers two unique programs, the Blouin Global Scholars and the Leaders in Social Justice, both of which foster the servant-leadership that is rooted in Walsh’s founding mission and enable students to begin making a difference from day one. 

Both programs are open to students of all majors and offer the fellowship of joining a living-learning community with students who are equally committed to service and leadership. Students also receive priority registration and advising. However, the Blouin Global Scholars address international issues whereas the Leaders in Social Justice work domestically to bring about social equality.

Application Deadline: January 25, 2019

Interviews: February 23, 2019
