Ethical Leadership Fellowship
The Fellowship At A Glance
This is a student-organized campaign to help raise funds for a fellowship in ethical leadership in the name of Dr. Howard T. Prince II (Brig General, Ret.). The Howard T Prince II Fellowship in Ethical Leadership will be awarded to students who have demonstrated a commitment to ethical leadership in their community and who have inspired others to act with the integrity we expect from our leaders. This fellowship will only available to students who are in their second year or later at UT.
Students will have to be nominated by their peers. A panel consisting of the LBJ School of Public Affairs senior leadership, faculty, and students will select the recipient(s) each year. The size (and number of awards) of the fellowship will depend on how large an endowment we can set up. Our goal is raise sufficient funds to begin issuing awards in Fall 2019. All students awarded this fellowship will also receive a certificate and their efforts will be recognized by the LBJ School. Your support can help make this a meaningful fellowship and help drive the change that our community, country, and the world need. You can find the official fellowship brochure here.

Our Long-Term Goals
The goal of this campaign is to raise funds so that we may officially launch the fellowship.
