Selected Leadership Academy Scholarships

The Selected Leadership Academy offers a unique and rewarding opportunity for members interested in developing leadership skills. Available exclusively to Selected members, the Academy promises to engage and grow participants through interactive conference calls, personal coaching calls and face-to-face experiences over a two-year structured curriculum.

The scholarship recipient will receive free tuition for their entire two-year term in the Selected Leadership Academy (a $4,990 value). In addition, the recipient will receive $300 each year to help cover the cost of books, fees and other program-related expenses. All other expenses and arrangements related to participating in the Selected Leadership Academy will be the responsibility of the recipient. The total estimated value of this scholarship at the end of two years is $5,590.
