Robertson Scholars have access to faculty, administrators, and program staff committed to developing their leadership capabilities, their academic potential, and their impact in the community.
The Robertson Scholars Program believes in the power of relationships. On campus and beyond, Robertson Scholars have access to a wealth of people resources for mentorship and coaching. From program staff and scholar alumni, to university faculty and community partners in the United States and abroad, scholars form meaningful relationships that support their long-term personal development.
In particular, the scholars' relationships with the program staff set the Robertson Scholars Program apart from other undergraduate programs. As invested advisors, the staff helps scholars to deliberately pursue their own personal development and the development of their leadership capabilities. Scholars regularly meet with members of the staff to discuss their academic pursuits and personal goals, plan their summers, and synthesize their many developmental experiences.
The Robertson Scholars Program invites Scholars to apply for funding for a variety of activities throughout the academic year. Activities may include, but are not limited to: attending or presenting papers at academic or professional conferences, participating in leadership development programs, workshops, or seminars. The goal of this program is to support students' attendance and participation in activities and programs that improve practical and fundamental leadership skills and provide opportunities to cultivate and expand academic and professional networks.
