Tuition puts the program out of reach for many talented individuals for Leadership Gwinnett and Glance Gwinnett. Scholarships draw those individuals in for diversification of class composition and positions Leadership Gwinnett for an even greater community impact.

Nearly $50,000 has been raised by individual Leadership Gwinnett classes, alumni and program supporters for the Leadership Gwinnett Scholarship Fund over the past five years.  Each year, scholarship dollars are awarded up to 20 candidates to insure balanced classes inclusive of race, gender, profession, organization type, and diversity of thought.
