Current Georgia Southern Students

Are you interested in joining Southern Leaders? If so, we recruit current Georgia Southern students on a yearly basis. We review applications throughout the year, and usually start the review process in the Spring. Once accepted, students start the program in the Fall semester. Students with a 2.75 GPA or higher are eligible to apply for membership.

As a note, the Southern Leaders program offers three year-long certificate programs. At the end of each year, students will get a digital badge and certificate to showcase on their LinkedIn profile. Additionally, if students successfully complete all three years, they will earn the Leadership and Service diploma seal and the Southern Leaders Graduate medallion.

Furthermore, if you have any questions about the program or your application status, please email us at
