Leadership North Carolina Scholarships

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available through the William Garrett Fund and the BCBSNC 100 County Initiative ScholarshipAll scholarship applicants must be accepted into the LNC program on the merits of their applications before they can be considered for scholarship funding.  Scholarship funding decisions are separate from program application review, and applying for a scholarship will not affect consideration of your program application.

William Garrett Fund Scholarships

The William Garrett Fund provides need-based scholarships to help candidates from across the state for whom the program fee presents a barrier to participation. Most Garrett Fund scholarships fall between $500 and $2,000. LNC may not be able to provide the full amount requested but will work diligently with you to support your participation and to create an affordable payment plan.

BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarships

Through a generous grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield North Carolina, LNC is able to provide additional support to applicants from counties that have never been represented or have been underrepresented in participation in the LNC program. This scholarship covers $4,750 of the $5,500 program fee as well as hotel accommodations for the program year. 

The 9 counties that have never had a participant in the program are: Alexander, Cherokee, Gates, Greene, Hoke, Martin, Northampton, Tyrrell, and Yadkin.  If you live and/or work in one of these counties or in another Tier One county, please indicate this as you complete your scholarship application. Priority consideration for the BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarships will go to candidates from the 9 counties listed above.
