LEAD21 announces a limited number of scholarships to encourage participation mainly from 1890, 1994, Territory, and 2008 institutions. The Recruitment and Application Committee of the LEAD21 Board of Directors will determine award amounts, which may vary but have typically covered 50% of the registration fee. NIFA will make awards directly to the participants’ institution via a Cooperative Support Agreement.

To be considered, applicants must request scholarship assistance through the online application form.
