Currently, the CSL sponsors the LINK programs (Emerge, Ascend & Leads), the Presidential Fellow program, the Northwest Crescent Leadership program and the Center for Student Leadership Fellow program. The Center for Student Leadership exists to prepare students to become ethical leaders who are engaged in their campus and larger communities.

Global Learning Scholarships: Kennesaw State University recognizes that a global education is essential to student success in today’s complex and interdependent world.  In 2007, the KSU student body recommended and approved a Global Learning Fee (GLF) to be instituted for the purpose of providing education abroad scholarships.   As a result, students pay a $14 per term global learning fee that feeds into the Global Learning Scholarship Fund.  In FY 2014 alone, over $745,000 was awarded directly to students, ranging from $600 to $2,100 per student scholarship. All Kennesaw State degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students in good academic standing are eligible for Global Learning Scholarships.
