KLI Student Support Policy
The Kravis Leadership Institute (KLI) provides monetary support to select CMC student leadership education and development programs throughout the academic year based on available funding. KLI considers requests on a case-by-case basis where the KLI budget allows. General guidance for making requests is as follows:
- Requests must be received at least 2 months prior to travel and event participation.
- Student support for travel and/or registration costs is generally limited to $750 per student.
- Participation must occur while a full-time CMC student.
- Support for partisan political events are not eligible.
- Requests should include the following information:
- Name and contact information for each student requesting support
- Travel/participation dates
- Event information (host, location, web reference if available…)
- Leadership relevance (why should KLI be interested?)
- Budget outline (estimated expenses and other support requested/received)
- Students agree that within one week of event completion they will provide a 1-2 page paper or article that describes the event and highlights the leadership education/development experience. The article, if relevant, may be used in the KLI newsletter, Illumine.
- Priority will be given to students actively participating in the Leadership Studies Sequence or in KLI (e.g., employment with KLI or in a KLI co-curricular leadership role). Students who have completed several leadership courses and/or are participants of KLI co-curricular activities (e.g., Sophomore Leadership Experience, KLI workshops, Kravis-de Roulet Conference) may also be considered. The decisions of KLI are final.
- Requests should be submitted in writing to:
