The NIC announced that the Richard G. Miller Memorial Foundation is sponsoring scholarships so that up to 25 men can attend the 2014 Jon Williamson Futures Quest. There are two sessions of Futures Quest scheduled for this winter from December 20 - 22 and January 4 - 6. The priority registration deadline is November 30.
Students interested in receiving a scholarship from the Richard G. Miller Memorial Foundation should register for Futures Quest, select scholarship as their payment choice, and type RGMMF as their scholarship provider. Students will be awarded a scholarship and placed in a session based upon session availability.
These scholarships cover the full registration fee and the NIC does reserve the right to limit the number of scholarships to students from any one community. Travel costs to and from Futures Quest remain the responsibility of the student.
Futures Quest is a three day program that targets new fraternity men from across the country. Two sessions will be held at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana, from December 20 - 22, 2013 and January 4 - 6, 2014.
At Futures Quest, emerging fraternity leaders will participate in a three day institute devoted to Ritual-based leadership, values-based action, personal goal setting, and commitment to chapter development. Futures Quest is a unique experience that provides fraternity men within their first 24 months of membership with an experience that is broader than their own chapter. At Futures Quest, participants will learn new skills related to ethical decision making and problem solving, conflict management, values integration, and effectively taking risks. All of this is then correlated to the pivotal role that fraternal values play in both leadership and being a fraternity man. At Futures Quest, we strive to answer the question of what does it mean to lead a fraternity and then provide the skills necessary to make that vision a reality.
100% of the graduates from the 2013 Futures Quest national sessions report that because of their experience they will make positive changes to their chapter and that they are prepared to be a better leader in their fraternity.
The registration fee for the program is $395 for men registering from institutions that have a dues paying chartered IFC and $495 for those that are not. To register, go to: http://www.nicindy.org/programs/futures-quest
