Online applications open in November 2017. Applications must be received by the end of February 2018 to be considered for our Summer Institute. Students will be notified of their acceptance in mid-March. Early application is recommended. To get an email when the application process opens, email firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be added to the NEW Leadership Updates list.
NEW Leadership NV conference will be held from June 4-9, 2017 on the UNLV campus. Conference hours during that week start from 8:00am-9:00pm each day.
Thanks to the generosity of our community partners, WRIN covers the costs of your meals, housing, and program materials. All NEW Leadership Nevada students are required to stay at the UNLV dorms for the duration of the program. We recognize that this program conflicts with some summer classes and family responsibilities; however, you must be able to commit to attending all of the sessions during the week. Because each day includes a full day of sessions, you will not be able to attend a class during this week.
Any college student enrolled in a Nevada college or university is eligible to apply, including students who will have graduated at the end of the 2017 fall semester or in spring 2018. Nevada residents attending a school outside Nevada are also eligible to apply. You do not need to be a political science major or be involved in student government to be considered. We encourage students with a variety of interests and backgrounds to apply because we believe that everyone who attends benefits in some way; academic and cultural diversity make NEW Leadership Nevada an even more enriching and impactful program.
