The Tom Rocklin Fund for Leadership Development is intended to help promising student leaders fund meaningful summer leadership experiences or activities to enhance their undergraduate careers and skills at Iowa.

Two (2) awards of $500 will be available for summer to fund the summer activity/experience of the selected applicant’s choice. Students from all backgrounds and majors are encouraged to apply. Summer leadership experience proposals may vary considerably but should relate to the enhancement of the student’s leadership skills. We invite creative and original proposals. Possibilities for funding include (but are not limited to) funding for:


  • Currently in your first, second, or third year at the University of Iowa
  • Current enrollment in twelve (12) or more credit hours
  • 3.2 or higher GPA
