The College Success Foundation - DC Leadership 1000 Scholarship is a scholarship program funded by individuals, foundations, or businesses and provides four-year scholarships to deserving students from Washington D.C. who need assistance attending college. Scholarships are provided by benefactors and are generally $5,000 per year for up to five years for a maximum of $25,000.
Donors may establish a named scholarship with a family name, foundation name or company name and, if they wish, may be introduced to the scholar recipient. This scholarship program is flexible; the donor(s) may establish specific parameters for the scholarship, such as determining a specific area of study, graduation from a particular high school or region, or enrollment at a particular college. Donations are used as last-in funding to fill the financial gaps, allowing scholars in need to attend college.
