End of Year Form for L1000 Scholars


ALL Leadership 1000 scholars must complete the End of Year Form and Donor Update each Spring to let us know whether or not they will be renewing the scholarship for the following academic year. 

In the form, you will be able to indicate to us whether:

  • You are renewing your Leadership 1000 Scholarship for the next academic year;
  • You are petitioning for a 5th year of funding after exhausting your award;
  • You have graduated with a bachelor's degree; OR
  • You are not renewing the scholarship because you no longer meet the renewal criteria.

If you are graduating or not planning to renew, please complete the End of Year Form and Donor Update to formally decline the scholarship. 

The form will be open during the month of April and must be completed by June 1, 2020. Failure to complete this process by the deadline may result in losing your scholarship.
