Leadership academy targets young women
The Cinderella Project and the LSU Office of Equity, Diversity and Community Outreach are co-hosting The Cinderella Project Leadership Academy Oct. 25 through Oct. 27 at The Lod Cook Hotel and Conference Center.
The academy’s objective is to immerse young women in a college setting, expose them to educational opportunities post-high school and inspire them to pursue their future academic goals.
The academy’s curriculum is designed to assist participants in making the transition from high school to college by demystifying the college application process, connecting them with resources at LSU and discussing the expectations of and demands on college students.
Seniors with a minimum 3.0 GPA and juniors and sophomores with a minimum 2.6 GPA are eligible to apply.
The academy application is available online at http://www.cinderellaprojectla.org.
Applications are due Sept. 14. Registration is $25.
Academy graduates will receive an $80 stipend to offset ACT testing costs and will be eligible to receive a college scholarship.
Also, Louisiana State Police will host a personal safety and security seminar at its headquarters.
Inquiries about the academy can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or (225) 302-0203.
