FLSP is a leadership development program for first-year students at SRU!  It’s designed for you to connect with other strong leaders on campus, build leadership skills, and enhance your resume to help you successfully navigate your activities and involvement on campus to make the most out of your SRU experience!

 

If you’re interested in furthering your leadership skills then FLSP is right for you!

 

Successfully graduating from FLSP allows you to apply for two separate scholarships. The first is a scholarship awarding two students $1250, which is open to all FLSP graduates. The second is the Board of Governor’s Scholarship (BOG) which will cover your tuition for the next 3 years, but you must be a PA resident to apply.

 

Cohort meetings for the Fall 2014 semester are still being determined (definite times will be available when you return back to SRU for the start of the semester in late August.)  All cohorts will take place Monday-Thursday between the hours of 3:00pm-8:15pm and will last for 1 hour and 15 minutes each week.

 

Here is an example of last year’s schedule.  As you can see, we offer a variety of cohort times to fit your schedule!

Tuesday 4:00-5:15, 5:30-6:45 and 7:00-8:15

Wednesday 3:00-4:15, 4:30-5:45 and 6:00-7:15
