Training Opportunities and Scholarships
We believe access and opportunity help people build better lives, and well-equipped leaders are empowered to create a strong ecosystem of organizational vibrancy and sustainability. As part of ELD’s pillar of “empowerment,” scholarships provide access for leaders of color to a variety of leadership development programs. Since 2001, we’ve awarded more than $400,000 through more than 200 scholarships to ELD members. Scholarships are available for the following community leadership development programs:
- Leadership Pikes Peak Signature Program
- Leadership Pueblo
- Colorado Springs Leadership Institute
- Center for Creative Leadership Community Leadership Program
- ELD Strategic Leadership: Beyond A Seat at the Table (formerly known as LeadershipPlenty)
- ELD Board Governance
