Empowering Leaders through Opportunity

Our alumni consistently tell us the same thing: your experience with CCL made an impact on your leadership and your life, and you’re grateful you had that opportunity. Did you know we also provide scholarships to attend our programs to leaders making a difference in their communities?

As a nonprofit, we believe in bringing change to where it’s needed most … and we need your help. We’re asking alumni to #LeadItForward and share transformational CCL experiences with deserving community leaders. Your tax-deductible donation will make it possible for a nonprofit, K–12 education, health, or collegiate to access life-changing leadership development — helping to create results that matter for all of us.

At CCL, we’re proud of the difference our alumni make — in business, in our communities, and for our world.

Those eligible to apply are leaders from:

  • Education
  • Foundations
  • State and Local Governments
  • 501(c)(3) Non-Profits Organizations
  • NGOs and INGOs

Applicants must complete and submit the online application and request a letter of recommendation be submitted on their behalf.

Seats for scholarships are limited and based on individual need, type of organization, and program availability.
If a program becomes overbooked, CCL reserves the right to re-schedule the scholarship recipient and enroll them in a program at a later date.

For more information, consult our FAQs or contact us at scholarships@ccl.org.

You can give to a number of mission-driven nonprofit organizations, but giving to CCL scholarships is an opportunity to directly impact the leadership and success of an individual and the lives they touch every day.

Since I left CCL, I have often thought through my steps so that I am bringing my best self to work each day. It is not often a leader can get a week away to reflect on who they are and who they want to be. This experience helped me grow in every way.
