LEDA empowers a community of exceptional young leaders from under-resourced backgrounds by supporting their higher education and professional success in order to create a more inclusive and equitable country.
Exceptional students from low-income backgrounds have unequal access to the top-tier colleges that cultivate most of our country’s leaders.
LEDA runs the LEDA Scholars Program, the LEDA Career Network, and the LEDA Policy Project.
