High schools / Deadline: February 20
High school juniors and seniors can apply for the Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s Student Leaders Program. Since its inception in 2004, the program has recognized more than 1,000 high school students identified as exemplary young people with a passion for helping their communities. Selected student leaders will participate in a paid summer internship with a local nonprofit organization, where they will experience first-hand how they can help shape their communities. They will also participate in a six-day, all-expense paid Student Leadership Summit in Washington DC July 19-24.
