BLDP Application - 2023
The Spring 2023 Application is now open!
Priority will be given to applications received by November 18. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled. Space is limited, so apply early!
The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.
Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require the following:
- Completed application form (at the bottom of this page),
- For students with GPA 3.0 – 3.49, two (2) letters of recommendation (one academic; one other)
Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria: (1) have sophomore standing or above and (2) have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).
Students who are admitted to the BDLP are required to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.
Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occured primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.

Applications for the BLDP Seminar will be ongoing until class is filled.
