We are excited to announce that we have selected 101 high school students for the LEDA Scholars Program to attend the 18th annual intensive Aspects of Leadership Summer Institute, dedicated to providing college admissions access, pre-college preparation and leadership development to exceptional young leaders from under-resourced backgrounds.
“This year, LEDA had one of the most talented applicant pool we have ever seen,” said Ilana Goldman, LEDA’s Interim Executive Director. “Given how the pandemic impacted the educational process, we were thrilled to see applicants of every background stepping up to reach their goals.”
On June 25, LEDA Cohort 18 Scholars will begin their summer residential experience at Princeton University to develop leadership skills, prepare for college and build a strong, long-lasting community. Afterwards, Scholars will receive ongoing academic, socio-emotional, and professional support, including career development and graduate school planning. Major corporations including Standard Chartered Bank, McKinsey, Bloomberg, and others have partnered with LEDA to help Scholars prepare for their careers.
