The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program seeks students who have demonstrated outstanding potential to become great leaders in college and beyond. Our goal is for Robertson Scholars to play significant and impactful roles in their communities and society, today and in the future.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical Robertson Scholar’. Our Scholars pursue a range of passions, academic interests, and personal and professional goals. While each Scholar brings their own skill sets, strengths, and personalities to the program, they share the following traits:

Purposeful Leadership

Fearless and Innovative

Inspiring and Motivational

Visionary and Determined

Intellectual Curiosity

Critical Thinkers

Thought Leaders in their Field

Strength of Character





Collaborative Spirit

Bridge Builders

Embrace Opportunities to Learn from Others
