Students who are admitted into the President’s Emerging Leaders Program (PELP) have, by the time of their application to Austin Peay, already demonstrated significant achievements as leaders and scholars.
Who can apply?
High school seniors who plan to enter Austin Peay as full-time freshmen in the fall of 2020 can now apply to PELP. To be considered for PELP, you must:

- have a composite ACT score of at least 26,
- and exhibit leadership qualities as evidenced by participation in high school and community service activities.

Please use your very best writing style when you submit the responses to the essay prompts. Be careful to use good grammar, check your spelling, and be sure that you do not have typographical errors.
