Brock Leaders’ Citizenship Society (BLCS) awards students for high academic achievement as well as community involvement and leadership. Students are invited to apply to join BLCS prior to starting their studies at Brock University. Members of BLCS receive a renewable scholarship of $2000 per year, for up to four years and are inducted into the society. BLCS provides personal, professional and community development opportunities for its members.
BLCS members continue to achieve academic success while utilizing their past leadership abilities to continue to grow, motivate, organize, inspire and create opportunities for themselves, University and the surrounding community.
Throughout the fall/winter sessions at Brock, the BLCS is committed to providing their skills and expertise to both the University and the surrounding communities such as St. Catharines, Thorold, Pelham and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Members who return home during the summer are strongly encouraged to maintain their level of contribution to their residential community.
The members of the BLCS are always looking to become part of large initiatives at Brock. They are dedicated individuals who desire to be part of events in the university and community. Through regular meetings and constant communication, members of the BLCS plan their initiatives and execute them with the leadership abilities that first enabled them to become part of the organization.
We envision a group of passionate Brock University students channeling their strengths to inspire themselves and others to invoke positive change within the Brock, local, and global communities.
The mission of the Brock Leaders Citizenship Society is to unite exceptional students, and nurture their growth into the leaders of tomorrow by fostering their desire to learn, strengthening their character, and encouraging fellowship. An emphasis on academic excellence, leadership development, and philanthropic community service will help us to achieve this objective.
Brock Leaders Citizenship Society: Lead the Change.
The Brock Leaders Citizenship Society was created in 2008, and was Ontario’s first university honours society. Brock University’s on-going commitment to student leadership and the creation of community minded citizens, lead to the development of the Brock Leaders Citizenship Society (BLCS). The program, based on the successful Luckyday Foundation Citizenship Scholars Program at the University of Southern Mississippi, was created to inspire and foster student leadership in the community for academically exceptional students.
