Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?
Registration can be found the the Leadership Summit homepage. Please note that payment is due upon registration (via credit card: $20 GVSU Student and $30 Non-GVSU Student) unless the student is a part of a "group" that is sponsoring the registration fee.

GVSU Students: There are 200 scholarships available to reduce the $20 registration fee for Leadership Summit 2017. You must be a currently enrolled GVSU student to qualify for this scholarship. Please read this entire page before proceeding to the registration page.
