Apply to The 25

How to Apply 

Thank you for your interest in The 25. Each year, 25 incoming first-year undergraduate female students will be selected to participate in a four-year cohort of The 25.

Application instructions:
Before beginning your application, ensure you've reviewed and understand all program requirements listed on the Program Details page. Then, carefully read and complete all questions in this application. You may find it helpful to initially type your answers in a Word document so as to not lose your work on this application. Your application cannot be edited after submission.

You will be asked to provide contact information for two references (not a family member or peer) who we can send a short reference questionnaire to. References should be individuals who know you well enough to provide a character reference and can speak to your readiness to participate in a leadership development program. Please let these individuals know that they will be receiving an email from the-25@bethel.edu containing a reference request within the next few days.
