The application process for the 2021 ELC Scholarship Program is now closed.
“Previously, I had been told that The Executive Leadership Council’s Honors Symposium & Gala would be something I would never forget, but I had no idea it would be life-changing! To be able to network with the number of Fortune 500 Company’s C-Suite Executives and Mid-Level Managers was unthinkable to me prior to The ELC. Every single person I encountered was willing to help and wanted to see each of us succeed. My favorite part was the intimate workshops with various companies throughout the week. As scholars, we were able to ask questions and gain valuable advice that will stay with us forever. I am forever thankful to The ELC and Nationwide for this amazing opportunity!”
“Heading down to The Executive Leadership Council Honors Symposium, I did not know what to expect. I have received scholarships and awards from organizations that have similar goals, but something about The ELC was different. How right I was! In only four-days, I had the opportunity to meet top black executives from around the country, network with corporations of my interest and build strong bonds with my fellow scholars. As the Former President and CEO of The ELC, Skip Spriggs says: “Whether you like it or not, you are in the relationship business.” As a sophomore, The ELC has opened doors for me I could only wish for, and I am extremely grateful.”
“I feel so lucky to have received the opportunity to attend the ELC Honors Symposium. Attending the symposium gave me the opportunity to network with some of the nation’s most prominent black leaders, something that I never thought I would have the chance to do as a college junior. Connecting with so many bright black students across the country was a truly empowering experience. This was truthfully the opportunity of a lifetime!”
