The Scholarship Fund

Your gift to the Scholarship Fund will help underwrite participant fees. This fund enables us to increase access, so that each Leadership Worcester class is representative of our diverse community, including those who may not be able to pay the full tuition fee.  Applications are considered on a need blind basis. Financial aid is awarded to those selected from the program representing nonprofit organizations, small businesses and entrepreneurs.

The Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 through generous support from The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation, George I. Alden Trust, Stoddard Charitable Trust, The Hoche Scofield Foundation, Fletcher Foundation and Lois and Scott Rossitier.

The Class of 2021 has established an alumni scholarship (funded by alumni), in order to help bridge remaining financial gaps for some future participants. Help us reach our initial year fundraising goal of $3,000. Donations are made through the Worcester Chamber of Commerce. As a Leadership Worcester Alumni, you know first-hand how rewarding and beneficial this program can be for career development, network building, & community growth and involvement! Help to support this experience for a leader that might not otherwise be able to participate. We need support from Leadership Worcester Alumni, like you!
