As part of the sponsorship from UF/IFAS Extension, FAC is pleased to provide the opportunity to assist our ACC Graduates with scholarships of up to $5,000 to participate in the next Leadership Florida Class beginning in the Fall of 2013. We encourage all ACC Graduates to apply, including those that will graduate in June 2013.

Each year, Florida’s finest leaders are selected to participate. Participants are chosen for their abilities, passion about our state, and commitment to help make great things happen for Florida. 55 leaders will be chosen to participate in a stimulating and thought-provoking, eight-month educational program that consists of a series of 5 (five) two and three-day sessions held in cities throughout the state, the culmination of which is the equivalent of a sixth session where participants will join fellow Leadership Florida members at our Annual Meeting. These sessions include programming on issues critical to Florida, leadership skills assessment and training, and relevant information on Florida's history, demography, diversities, and opportunities. One of the most rewarding and lasting benefits of the program is the valuable time spent interacting with other leaders from a variety of professions, philosophies and parts of the state who represent Florida's diverse ethnic and racial composition. They are currently selecting applicants for the 2013-14 class. Click here for more information.

Applications must be submitted on-line to Leadership Florida by no later than May 10, 2013. If you are approved by Leadership Florida to be a part of the 2013-14 Class and are a graduate of FAC’s ACC Program then you will be eligible for a scholarship from UF/IFAS and FAC. Depending on how many ACC Graduates get accepted will determine the amount of the scholarship. You may also consider applying for the scholarship that Leadership Florida offers for  local government officials.
