Each fall the New Leader Scholarship hosts an annual dinner to honor past and current recipients of the New Leader Scholarship. The annual dinner reunites the growing community of scholars and offers opportunities for scholars to meet potential mentors. The dinner also introduces donors to the scholars, providing a first hand view of the impact of the scholarship.
Following the dinner, the Fund provides a day-long retreat, giving past and present scholars an opportunity to share experiences, advice and provide support for one another. Several members of the Board facilitate the retreat; provide continuity for the scholars and feedback regarding changes made to the Fund. The retreat also creates a forum for scholars to express unmet needs and suggest potential new directions that the Fund might take.
