Adam Schmidt, an NC State civil engineering major with a minor in Chinese studies, was recently announced as one of 16 sophomores across the U.S. selected for the Mount Vernon Leadership Fellows program.

The program, which commenced its fourth cycle on May 26, 2018, is a fully-funded six week summer institute and leadership development experience outside of Washington, D.C. modeled upon President George Washington’s “bias for action.” The program includes a stipend and focuses on studying and applying Washington’s leadership characteristics and vision to each student’s leadership style and drive.

Schmidt is the first person from NC State to be selected as a Mount Vernon Leadership Fellow. In spring 2017 Samuel Shain became NC State’s first semi-finalist for the program.
