Each of the class members receives a $500 per semester scholarship for two years, room scholarship for one year and enrollment in a leadership class that is offered exclusively to PLC students. After completing their second year of the program, students receive a sponsored trip to Washington, D.C.

During the third and fourth years of the program, students serve as mentors for the first- and second-year PLC members and serve in campus leadership roles, university activities and internships. Students may be eligible for continuing scholarships. 

The PLC is a four-year program offered by the university to recognize outstanding leadership qualities and to encourage students in their participation as SWOSU campus leaders and future leaders in Oklahoma. The program is designed to assist in promoting and developing effective academic, social and leadership skills, which is accomplished through direct participation in campus activities, seminars, guest speakers, recruitment and alumni efforts. 

SWOSU offers 14 nationally-accredited academic programs—the most among Oklahoma’s regional universities. SWOSU has three campus locations in Weatherford, Sayre and Yukon and offers nearly 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including a doctorate in pharmacy.
