Governor's Leadership Foundation

Scholarships offered by our partners

A number of full or part scholarships or awards are available to people who do not have the means to pay the full program fee but who will, by their participation in the program, add important diversity of background and experience to the program group and benefit personally and impact many others through their participation in the program.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of our financial partners who help us have greater impact.
