The Valley County Community Foundation Fund (VCCFF) Advisory Committee recognizes the importance of growing leadership capacity to ensure community vitality. We value every person’s innate abilities to serve as a leader within his or her families, workplace and community. The VCCFF invests in people through supporting dynamic programming and opportunities that foster individual growth and community engagement.
The Valley County Community Foundation Fund is a strong supporter of the SynoVation Valley Leadership Academy with annual grants from endowment funds. This year, thanks to expanded support from the Valley County Community Foundation Fund, SVLA will be offering tuition assistance for participants in Levels 1 and 2/3.
The pricing structure and registration deadlines for the 2019/2020 Academy are listed below. This tuition rate does not include the scholarship.
INVESTMENT: Cost for this program is normally $1,600, but with the community's investment in this program, we are able to offer it for an investment of only $600.
The final deadline for SVLA registration is April 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
WHO CAN RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP?
People who are registering for the SVLA-Level 1 and Level 2/3 Academies are invited to submit a scholarship application for tuition assistance support and encouraged to communicate with SVLA Board members to share specific needs for assistance. Participants are eligible for the SVLA scholarship whether they are paying for the tuition personally or tuition is being paid for by their business, employer, or organization. A limited number of scholarships are available.

The Application deadline for the SVLA scholarship is Monday, April 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Please contact the SVLA Board if you are needing assistance with the scholarship application or additional time to apply.
