Scholarship Application Instructions

A limited number of scholarships are available through the William Garrett Fund and the BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarship. All scholarship applicants must be accepted into the LNC program on the merits of their program 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.


Please complete all elements of this scholarship application by June 24, 2024, and after submitting your Class 32 program application. Candidates who complete only the scholarship application will not be considered for acceptance.  Completed applications will be considered for funding under one or both scholarship programs per eligibility criteria.

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 by every applicant but will work diligently to support participation and to create an affordable payment plan.


William Garrett Fund scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the LNC alumni who have supported this program to pay it forward to future LNC participants. 

BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarships

Leadership North Carolina encourages candidates from all of the state's 100 counties to apply. The BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarship supports qualified applicants from counties that have never been represented or have been underrepresented in participation in the LNC program.  


Priority consideration for BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarship support is given to applicants who live or work in counties historically underrepresented in the LNC program. Review the list to determine if you are eligible for this scholarship and check the appropriate box below if you qualify for consideration. 


The BCBSNC 100 County Initiative Scholarship covers $6,250 of the $7,000 program fee as well as hotel accommodations during the program year.  This scholarship program is made possible through a generous grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

Eligibility for Scholarship Consideration

If you are not eligible under the criteria for either program, please submit the separate program application but do not complete this scholarship application.
