Quaker Leadership Scholars Program
What is the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program at Guilford College? The Quaker Leadership Scholars Program (QLSP) is a group of approximately fifty students and four staff members who come together at Guilford from various Quaker and non-Quaker backgrounds.

Do I have to be a member of the Religious Society of Friends to join? The majority of students in QLSP are Quaker, but others are exploring Friends’ beliefs and practices.

You should be able to describe what draws you compellingly to Quakerism, whether you are officially a Friend or not.
