These activities are designed to enhance the Ambassadors' leadership skills while meeting the needs of outer GMC Columbus students. Recipients of this competitive, merit based scholarship were selected based on their exceptional academic accomplishments, leadership experience and extra-curricular involvement, as well as other factors.
