SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 UPDATE: 2020 scholarships will be announce soon! Sign up on the right to be among the first to hear.

All of us here at Ambassador Leaders are committed to making life-changing opportunities possible for students. We are excited to announce scholarships for exceptional middle and high school students for 2019 Summits.

We will be awarding over 30 competitive partial-tuition scholarships for 2019 Leadership Summits. Applicants for the scholarships will be evaluated based on financial need, scholastic achievement and community involvement.


Selection will be based on the following:

  • Financial need: Although not a requirement to apply, preference will be given to students whose family income is less than $50,000 per year.

  • Community involvement: Please attach a document describing your community involvement.

  • Scholastic achievement: Include a copy of your current school transcript or report card with grading scale.

  • Personal essay: This is the most important part. Making a difference in your school, community, and the world requires leadership. Describe how you have established yourself as a leader and helped make a difference in your community, as well as how participating in an Ambassador Leadership Program will help you grow as a leader. Please do not simply list your activities, but provide a personal essay describing what you have done to make a difference adn how the program will help you. (Limit 500 words.)

Important dates to keep in mind: 

  • Applications must be received no later than February 15, 2019. Download it here.

  • Scholarship recipients will be announced by March 15, 2019.

Our scholarship program is a great way to supplement your fundraising efforts, but competition is high, so you should continue fundraising throughout the year to meet your goal. Many of our students successfully fund their entire tuition, and they are the first to say how rewarding, yet challenging, the process is.

Our team is here to help you along the way. Get ideas, get started, and make it happen!
