Hello there. Thank you for your interest in nominating a Leap Semester Student.
What are you nominating someone to do?
Our students mix practical skills with real-world experiences. At Meetup, our team of instructors who’ve worked alongside MIT, Stanford, the Obama Campaign, etc. teach workshops and classes on five core competencies. Throughout the weeks in between, the Leap Semester team supports these individuals as they research and explore their fields of study through apprenticeships, online courses and creative projects around the world.
Who could benefit?
Consider nominating talented, self-starting students who hope to learn through experience. Leap Semester is designed for college students who are interested in receiving college credit for their Semester experiences while also learning transitional skills. Students are often strategists, designers, business developers, entrepreneurs, anthropologists, software developers or pursuing a field that benefits from a wider set of experiences and research. They’re interested in further education and are interested in designing their own path forward with a bright and caring community.
