Multicultural Leadership Scholars Program (MLSP)

MLSP is a year-long program designed to develop students’ understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion and their impact in society as well as at Guilford. Students can apply to MLSP at the end of their first year. Currently, only sophomore, juniors and seniors are allowed to be in the program. MLSP scholars receive a scholarship for the academic year. Scholars meet every Wednesday night from 6pm – 8pm.
