QUEST Leadership Scholarship

Combining Leadership Skills with Academic Achievement


The QUEST Scholars is a program designed to help students develop leadership skills while achieving academic success consistent with graduating in four years. The QUEST Scholars program includes a comprehensive four-year plan that involves training, experiential learning opportunities, community and university service, as well as the chance to engage in self-reflection regarding leadership development.

Participants begin their first year with interactive leadership training followed by opportunities to apply their new leadership skills. In the second through fourth years, students will participate in on-campus experiential learning opportunities, continued leadership development and opportunities to engage in community and university service.

The QUEST Scholars program aligns with the Fontbonne University QUEST Leadership Initiative, which is open to all students. Each scholar, throughout their active participation and completion of the QUEST Scholars program will also meet and complete all five peaks for the Quest Leadership Initiative while further enhancing their leadership skills and positive impact on the Fontbonne community.
