We believe every student deserves the opportunity to discover their strengths and make a difference in their school and community. The more middle school and high school students who attend our services, the more positive impact we can have in our communities. To reach more students, Launch established a scholarship program to help students and families who don't have the financial means to attend our services. 

Thanks to generous private donations, we offer two types of need-based scholarships for Workshop. The first is a full scholarship that covers all of the registration costs, and the second is a half scholarship, which covers approximately half of the cost of Workshop. We have a limited number of these scholarships available and will require applicants to submit a student-written essay as well as financial information to ensure the scholarships are awarded to those who are most in need. 

To apply for a scholarship for Workshop, complete the appropriate basic registration forms on the registration page (when Workshop is not sold out.) We will review all of the scholarship applications at the same time and award full and half scholarships based on need. 

For the essays, the students will have to write 200-400 words on the following prompts: 

  1. What is an issue that affects your school and community and what do you think you could do to solve it or improve the situation? 
  2. Why is leadership important to you and how can you improve your own leadership skills?

Because both sessions of Workshop 2017 has sold out, we have closed our scholarship application. You can still indicate scholarship need when signing up for the waitlist. 


In addition, we also offer scholarships for several of our Leadership Retreats. The deadline to apply for a scholarship for a Leadership Retreat is usually about 10 days before the event. Applications for scholarships for leadership retreats are available on our events page.

If you have any questions about the scholarship program, please contact the Launch Foundation Executive Director Lincoln Arneal at lincoln@launchleadership.org.
