If you are interested in applying for the Washington State Leadership Academy (WELA), we suggest you begin by talking with
the top administrators and human resource director/VP at your college. Ask these people
about their perception of your readiness and ability to garner institutional support.

You may also wish to talk with some of WELA's current or past participants, who are listed under "WELA participants".
