BNSF Neeley Leadership Program Application

Please complete the application online application. This is due by 5 p.m. CST on Friday, March 23, 2018

I understand that the BNSF Neeley Leadership Program includes an academic curriculum of 15 credit hours, weekly lab sessions and some weekend activities over the course of the three-year program. The program combines a personalized, interactive learning environment with innovative programs that offer students practical, real-world experience. In addition, the program requires travel and participation in activities outside of the classroom setting, including but not limited to, a trip to Chicago as well as a trip to England and Scotland. The international experience is required as part of the 15 credit hours and is only partially subsidized by the program. As such, if selected, I agree to take part in all of the program’s curricular and co-curricular activities. Please review the Student Contract prior to completing this application.
