Student Application 
Latino Student Leadership Conference 
June 9 - June 14, 2024 

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 to attend a summer conference from June 9 to June 14, 2024. 
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, develop and use your leadership skills, and be empowered to seek opportunities for educational and professional growth

Your meals, lodging, and transportation will be paid by  generous contributions from private industry, civic organizations, and individuals. If you are accepted, you will be  asked to pay a $40 fee* to cover insurance, a group picture, a T-shirt, and educational materials. 

*$40 fee may be paid by the student's school district in some cases, to be determined in May, 2024.

To be considered for this unique experience, you must:  

1. Be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (no exceptions).

2. Be in eighth or ninth grade this year.

3. Have demonstrated academic and leadership potential. 

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

Complete and submit the IEFLP application 
online no later than March 15, 2024 by 11:59 pm. Students will be notified the first week of May, 2024, if accepted. 
If you need any additional information, email us at application@iefl.org. We also encourage you to connect with us on social media to learn more about important events.
