BOLD ENOUGH TO HELP REINVENT ANTIOCH, ONE OF AMERICA’S GREAT COLLEGES?
We are seeking bold, imaginative, creative learners who are capable of handling the rigors of a high quality liberal arts education and who possess the desire and capacity to effect change within their communities and throughout the world. Could you be one of them?
As members of one of the founding classes of the newly independent Antioch College, students admitted for the entering fall classes in 2012, 2013, and 2014 will receive the Horace Mann Fellowship. Named after our first president, this competitive award includes a full-tuition scholarship for four years of undergraduate study at a College unlike any other in America. The Horace Mann Fellowship is available only to students seeking their first bachelor degree or who have not earned a degree beyond the bachelor's level.
Our unique educational model begins with the premise that the way we live today is not sustainable. To this end, the newest Horace Mann Fellows will join a community coming together to discover new and better ways of living. Through a distinctive integration of academic study, real-world work and community participation, Horace Mann Fellows will exhibit the determination and grit to improve the world inherited from their elders.
Antioch College is not where you go to join fraternities, play intercollegiate sports or sit in lecture halls with 100 classmates. It’s the college for young people who want much more out of the undergraduate experience – students who are intelligent, passionate, and mission-driven…those who want nothing less than to leave their mark on the world.
If this sounds like you, give us a look. See if you have what it takes to earn standing as a Horace Mann Fellow.
