Veterans Scholarship

 

Our Veterans have provided an invaluable service to our nation.  Thousands of the men and women who have served our country are returning to the civilian workforce and many are right here in MetroWest. We feel it is our responsibility to help our veterans to transition from the battlefield to becoming leaders at home.

The skills learned in the military often translate to leadership roles within our workforce, but our veterans need the networks, community knowledge, civilian training, and the connections to encourage that transition.  That’s where we come in!

Leadership MetroWest is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and connecting engaged and collaborative leaders who move the region forward. Each year since 1987, at its flagship program, the MetroWest Leadership Academy, 30 experienced and emerging leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors meet for 10 monthly program days to explore regional issues and institutions, foster valuable cross-sector relationships, and enhance their leadership capacity.

Part of the Academy curriculum includes developing a community service project that will have a positive impact on the region.  During their Academy year, the class of 2013 initiated a scholarship fund to enable MetroWest veterans to have the same valuable experience they had by participating in the Leadership Academy.

The fund enables veterans identified through community resources (such as our Veteran Services Officers) to attend the Academy, and we ask for your help.  Every dollar donated to this Veterans Scholarship Fund will go directly to fund the tuition for a veteran participant in the MetroWest Leadership Academy.  This opportunity will help our veterans and our community as we connect the two.  Our first recipient of the scholarship is participating in the current Academy class of 2014! We want to continue this in the years to come.

You can have a positive impact on the region by empowering a veteran to become a leader at home.  Please contact Helen Lemoine, Executive Director, at 508.872.6161 or email info@leadershipmetrowest.org with any questions about the Leadership Academy or the Veterans Scholarship Fund.  A donor form is attached below.

The veteran tuition for the Leadership Academy program is $1395.  Donations for a full tuition, or in any amount toward the tuition, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your consideration and generosity.

We are pleased to recognize a major donor to our Veterans Fund, The 200 Foundation.  Their support is immensely appreciated.
