About the Lederman program

As a Lederman Scholar, you'll receive the same benefits that North Central College students enjoy:

  • Small class sizes (15:1 undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio).
  • Faculty-mentor relationships that often extend beyond graduation.
  • Letters of recommendation from North Central faculty.
  • Preparation for your college application process by completing The Lederman Scholars’ rigorous selection procedure.
  • Access to all campus facilities.

Lederman Scholars are welcome to take classes anytime they’re scheduled during the summer or school year. Courses are held during day and evening hours. Students are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements to and from campus, which is conveniently located within walking distance of the Metra commuter rail station in Naperville.
