For Sponsors

Sponsoring and/or creating a scholarship for students to join the GLA is a great way to provide a young person with an opportunity to grow their leadership and connect to a larger community of leaders around the world.

This support helps participants who might otherwise be unable to assume the costs for a GLA course of study. Through your generosity, you provide them with an experience that will help to clarify their future path and purpose.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding how to sponsor and/or support the leadership development and educational growth of young people! Email us at for more information.

100% of your donation goes toward program costs and supports the creation of a new generation of young leaders around the world.

Named Scholarships

Donors who give multi-year gifts of $5,000+ annually are invited to name an iLEAP scholarship.

Additionally, you will receive personalized appreciation from the scholarship recipient(s), recognition for their contribution in all reports and publications, and exclusive invitations to events with graduates and/or program participants. Named scholarships can also be a collective effort where two or more people combine their gifts to achieve the financial goal.

“The iLEAP program gave me a language to think about the inner feelings or outer situations that is influencing myself, and also that language helped me to explain the ideas that I had in myself…this encouraged me to think deeply about myself, relationship with others, and the connection between myself and the society. Now I want to bring the idea of “social good” into the mainstream of business.”
