HACKENSACK, N.J. -- The Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce (MRC) is offering scholarships to Chamber members who are selected to participate in Bergen LEADS, 10-month learning and leadership program for adults who live or work in Bergen County.
Men and women from the private sector, nonprofit agencies and government organizations, as well as community volunteers, are encouraged to submit an application form, available at www.bergenleads.org .
“In order to grow a strong economy in the greater Meadowlands of Bergen County, we will need dedicated and strong leaders,” Jim Kirkos, CEO of the Meadowlands Chamber said in a statement. “The Bergen LEADS program is the perfect incubator to identify those leaders and the program is a natural extension of our advocacy.”
Tuition for the program is $2,000, but the Meadowlands Chamber will offer $500 scholarships for up to four of its members who are accepted into the Class of 2017.
