“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” - Dolly Parton
In all industries, natural leaders are essential in cultivating a successful, welcome, and prosperous environment in which all people benefit. Very rarely is an extremely successful company lacking a figure that workers look up to because of their leadership qualities.
As innovation and technology are becoming more prevalent, leaders around the world must be encouraged to continue pursuing their dreams to bring their vision to light and lead the way for the future.
To contribute to the advancement of leadership for the future, the Next Young Leaders Program Scholarship will be awarded to one very ambitious and impactful student who has stellar leadership qualities and displays excellence in and out of the classroom.
The Next Young Leaders Program is a program led by Agha Haider, who is focused on providing high school seniors with an opportunity to navigate the college process, receive a virtual mentorship, and a scholarship towards their college education.
All high school juniors (2022) are eligible to apply for this scholarship. To apply, please describe an example of your leadership and write about what being a leader means to you.
Please describe an example of your leadership. Include what being a leader means to you and how you will apply what you learned to your time beyond high school/college.

The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application.
