The Civic Leader Scholarship was established to encourage active participation of youth in the American political process and in service to their community, both now and in the future. Scholarships are awarded annually at Lunch With Legends which is the primary fundraiser of the League.
The Committee of volunteers review the applications and interview the finalists. The students are assessed on elements of leadership (initiative, responsibility, resiliency, honesty, creativity, and enthusiasm). Applicants should exhibit good communication and problem-solving skills. They should be active in both school and community while also doing well academically.
