AsULead is a four-day summer program for historically underrepresented rising high school seniors that provides the opportunity to develop leadership skills and learn about the college application process (including financial aid, scholarships, essay and résumé training). Students who attend will leave as AsULead ambassadors, prepared to offer leadership in college access to their peers.
During the program, students will meet with admission, scholarships and financial aid counselors, as well as current college students, academic advisors, professors and career counselors.
AsULead takes place on Appalachian's campus July 22 - 25, and the deadline to apply is June 3. The application requires a reference form and a response to two questions, as well as a high school transcript and ACT, SAT or PSAT test scores.
