An Online Experience Like No Other! 

Dear Student: 
 
If you are an eighth- or ninth-grade Latino student, here’s your chance to become part of a very special leadership program. 
 
We’ll be selecting 120 students just like you to attend a three-day virtual online conference  from June 16 to June 18, 2021. 
 
You’ll learn skills that will help you become an effective leader in your school and, eventually, in your community, in business and in government.   
 
You’ll learn to be proud of your heritage, to use your leadership skills, to gain the most you can from the opportunities available to you in this country, and to strive for higher goals in your education. 
 
Your participation may be paid for by funds from your school district, by generous contributions from private industry, from civic organizations, and individuals, or a combination of these.
 
To be considered for this unique experience, you must:  

1. Be in eighth or ninth grade this year 

2. Have demonstrated academic and leadership potential 

3. Have a 2.5 GPA or higher on your current transcript 

4.
Complete and submit the IEFLP application 
submitted online no later than March 29, 2021. Students will be notified by the first week of May. 
 
 
If you need any additional information,  email us at application@iefl.org
 
Sincerely,
