The mission of the Leaders for Life Fellowship is to enable highly motivated Take Stock in Children scholars by providing the resources that will empower them to develop their full potential. A Leaders 4 Life Fellow demonstrates solid leadership skills, strong moral character, and academic success to excel in a university environment. The mission of the Leaders for Life Fellowship is to continue support for specifically selected Take Stock in Children scholars who exceed expectations in the areas of academia, commitment, citizenship, and leadership. Leaders for Life promote growth, self-responsibility, and academic success through unique mentorship, finances, student advocacy, and educational opportunity. Becoming a Leader for Life Fellow represents the culmination of these resources to inspire and develop future leaders in our communities and society. 

FELLOWSHIP BENEFITS: The Leaders 4 Life Fellowship is not a scholarship. A fellowship is a community of interest, activity, feeling, or experience. The Leaders for Life Fellowship has benefits and can include a new laptop computer, leadership training, and professional development. L4L Fellows who choose to attend 4-year public universities in Florida will also receive funding up to $10,000 per year. The financial gift will be based on each recipient’s individual needs as assessed by the university and Leaders 4 Life Fellowship. Applicants should understand that the L4L Fellowship is designed to provide unmet needs or expenses not covered by FL Prepaid, Pell Grants, Bright Futures, University Awards, or other private scholarships and grants.
