Intrapreneurial Leadership Fellows Program
The Intrapreneurial Leadership Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for service members and veterans enrolled at Columbia School of General Studies and current Barnard students to connect across personal and professional experiences and develop the skills, confidence, and relationships you need to lead change in your post-undergraduate lives.
The program is led by Dr. Loretta Brady, author of Bad Ass & Bold and Director of the Community Resilience & Social Equity Lab at Saint Anselm College, and supported by guest experts from on- and off- campus.

Eligible Barnard and General Studies students who are interested in investigating what it means to be an intrapreneur. If you are a Barnard student, you do not need to have military experience but if you do, we are especially interested in seeing an application from you!
Intrapreneurs change systems from within - they innovate *inside* organizations. Do you see yourself working in organizations in the future, and do you want to develop the skills and relationships to succeed at that? If you are a Barnard student, do you want to get to know students from Columbia School of General Studies who have experience navigating male-dominated institutions? We're looking for students who are eager to find points of connection and opportunity between their experiences and the experiences of the other members of the cohort - at Athena, we pride ourselves on our ability to put just the right mix of people in a room for amazing things to happen.
As a cohort, Intrapreneurial Leadership Fellows will gather on the following Fridays from 2-4 PM:
- October 14
- December 2
- January 20 (optional)
- February 17
- March 24
- April 28
Fellows receive a stipend of $500.
The program provides Fellows the opportunity to create individualized and actionable personal strategic plans, by helping them reflect on their professional goals, explore strategies that will help them achieve those goals, and develop and practice skills that will help them drive change from within our most important, established institutions.
And perhaps most importantly, Fellows can count on leaving the program with strong relationships with their cohort of students from Barnard and Columbia School of General Studies - relationships that will serve them in the present and future.
The AY 22-23 application is closed.
