Apply to the INSPIRE Program

Who is eligible to apply?

Rising sophmore women students from ANY Major.       

Applications are now open until June 30th. Click here. 

INSPIRE selects students with the intent of creating a class of individuals who represent varied backgrounds and experiences.

We will seek to identify and recruit women undergraduates with leadership potential into this program. Admission to the program will be based on a competitive application process. Students will be chosen based on numerous factors including, but not limited to: individual leadership potential, maturity, ability to deal with challenges, and capacity to reflect on one’s own personal strengths and weaknesses, special interests, unique characteristics or diverse experiences which contribute to the program’s learning goals, interest in public service, and a commitment to participate fully in INSPIRE. We are especially interested in identifying students who come from low-income communities, or who are first-generation college students, or major in a field where women are underrepresented.  We hope to solicit a diverse group of students for this program. 


Application deadline is June 30, 2022.
