SCHOLARSHIP REQUEST - Leadership Cumberland has $6,000 in scholarship money that will be awarded to small (defined as 20 or fewer employees) for-profit or nonprofit businesses. This could be two full scholarships or several partial scholarships.

Write a statement addressing the following:

1. Describe the circumstances regarding financial need for your employer and/or you.
2. How much assistance are you requesting? (Tuition is $2,550)  
3. How will the remaining balance be paid? Through your employer or you? Payment plans are possible and can be requested above. 

All applications are subject to confidential evaluation. If you are not selected to participate in this year’s Leadership Cumberland class, your application can be retained by the curriculum committee at your request for consideration for later enrollment. 

All applicants will be notified of acceptance status no later than June 24, 2022. 

Tuition Payment: Due to fixed costs, full payment of tuition is expected by August 31, 2022 and is not refundable. Fellows utilizing an approved payment plan who are unable to finish the class are to fulfill their tuition in total; they may also recommend a substitute or defer participation. Any exceptions require board approval. 

Acceptance Policy: Should applications exceed openings, final selection of qualified Fellows will be based on the desire to create a class with diverse backgrounds, skills, and knowledge. Decisions will utilize identified criteria and standards. “Wait listed” candidates will be offered early admission the following year.
