    LEAP is an acronym for Learn- Engage- Achieve- Program. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, LEAP is a TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program designed to serve selected undergraduate students who are either low-income, first-generation, and/or have a documented disability.

    As a LEAP student, you will have the opportunity to utilize specialized services that are not available to the general student population, including a personalized LEAP career coach, a LEAP peer mentor, and individualized math/writing tutors designed for your academic and career success.

    LEAP will provide the following services:

    Academic Tutoring and Support Financial and Economic Literacy Education
    Assistance in Course Selection Career Exploration
    Graduate/Professional School Assistance Cultural and Academic Enrichment
    Financial Aid Information, Counseling and Assistance Individualized Counseling
    Mentoring Program Grant-Aid to Students

    Participation in LEAP is limited since the program is only funded to serve 140 students each year. Interested students must submit an application along with all supporting documents online in order to be considered for the program. Participants are selected through a holistic review process and applicants may be called for an interview. Meeting the eligibility criteria and having an interview does not guarantee acceptance into the program. If you meet the criteria for eligibility but aren't admitted to LEAP due to capacity, you will be placed on our wait list.

    Applications are now closed for Fall 2019 for both incoming freshmen and current Lee University students.
