The Board of the New Leader Scholarship has regretfully decided to declare a moratorium on any new scholarship applications for 2021. Currrent scholars may apply for continuing scholarships. We will revisit this moratorium as circumstances change.
The New Leader Scholarship of the Marin Community Foundation annually awards scholarships of up to $8,000 which may be renewed. Awardees may receive additional support for graduate school application costs and graduate school tuition. Applicants NEED NOT be Marin County residents to qualify. Application deadline is March 10th. Please refer to guideline links below. Watch recent video of New Leader Scholar Awards.
New Guidelines and Applications are updated in mid-January for the upcoming academic year. Deadline for submission is March 10th.
Stipends for graduate school supplemental support are one-time only and can be submitted at any time.
For assistance with personal health related services (for Scholars only) please contact your New Leader Scholarship mentor or Dr. Ruth Goldman.
