Taking on a leadership is no easy task. It requires a strong knowledge, skill, and humility. Leaders are those that we look to for direction, inspiration, advice, and to keep us going when things get tough. If you’ve taken on a leadership role, whether it was for your school’s sport team, club, outside organization, or volunteer group, you may be qualified to earn free money for college. Leadership scholarships reward students who show skills in motivating others in and out of the classroom.
