Our Program

Achieve your goals with the Kaplan Leadership Program.

We believe in the transformative power of education and the Kaplan Leadership Program is our way of helping students with great potential and financial need to transform their lives. Through scholarships and other support, we help associate's degree students successfully transfer to and complete bachelor's degree programs while preparing them to become leaders in their professions and communities.

Imagine no barriers on the path to your goals.

The Kaplan Leadership Program, part of the Kaplan Educational Foundation, began in 2006. The Foundation works with high-potential associate's degree students who have a financial need; it provides them with resources and support to help them raise their expectations, expand their personal goals, and eventually attain leadership roles in their professions and communities.

In addition to academic scholarships, we provide funding to assist with living expenses and other help in addressing many of the barriers students face. Through individualized academic advising, transfer counseling, college tours, summer study opportunities, and mentoring from corporate leaders, Leadership Program students are provided with the targeted help and resources needed to remove obstacles on the road to complete a four-year program and career success.

Whether you need relief from working full time so that you can study full time, or support determining the most efficient path to reach your academic professional goals or help figuring out what bachelor’s programs best suits you, we're here to help you reach your dreams.
