Scholarship Toward Sustainability: The Antioch Word Looks at LEAF

LEAF Scholars from Antioch College's class of 2019
LEAF Scholars from Antioch College's class of 2019

On September 28, the class of 2019 arrived on Antioch’s campus. This is the first class that didn’t receive a full Horace Mann Scholarship, but a half scholarship.  Yet due to an anonymous donation worth over $1 million, Antioch extended full tuition to a group of first-generation college students and environmental science majors. These environmental science majors are called LEAF (Leadership in the Environment at Antioch Fellowship) Scholars.  I had never heard of them until we had co-existed on Antioch’s campus together for several weeks so I decided to find out: Who are they? What did they have to do to become LEAF Scholars, and how are they working towards Antioch’s commitment to environmental sustainability?

The Antioch Word is a monthly podcast for the Antioch College community, about Antioch College. It is written and produced by Antioch College students working at WYSO.
