Support a Student


You’re not just writing a check – you’re building a promising future.

When you sponsor an individual scholarship, the rewards are life changing. A donation to our DC Leadership 1000 Scholarship Program by individuals, foundations or businesses provides scholarships to deserving students who need assistance attending an eligible four-year college or university. A Leadership 1000 Scholarship can be customized around a general set of requirements requested by the donor. Scholarships are provided by benefactors and are generally $5,000 per year for up to five years for a maximum of $25,000.

Donors may establish a named scholarship with a family name, foundation name or company name and, if they wish, may be introduced to the scholar recipient. This scholarship program is flexible; the donor(s) may establish specific parameters for the scholarship, such as determining a specific area of study, graduation from a particular high school or region, or enrollment at a particular college.

Donations are used as last-in funding to fill the financial gaps, allowing scholars in need to attend college.
