25th Annual National Student Leadership Congress
June 7-12, 2014 | American University, Washington, D.C. 

Request for Student Applications

Talent Search, Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math/Science Directors — It’s time to nominate your outstanding rising juniors or seniors to serve as delegates to the Council for Opportunity in Education’s National Student Leadership Congress (NSLC). Please select students who are ready for a challenging and intensive learning experience. It is important that student representatives come prepared for the rigors of a program that includes full schedules, requires open minds, and ensures leadership growth.

The registration fee is $1250 which includes housing, meals, admission fees for tours, NSLC t-shirts, and transportation while the student is in Washington D.C. The registration fee is an allowable project expense (OMB Circular A-21/A-122). The sending project is also responsible for travel expenses and making travel arrangements to Washington D.C. — Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Washington, D.C. (WAS) Amtrak Union Station only.

The online registration link is now open for 2014 with a deadline of May 9, 2014. Please click here to begin registration.

You must begin the registration process by entering only the project director’s e-mail address. A counselor or advisor’s e-mail address will not be recognized.
You may save and modify registrations for each student, and you may pay the total registration fee at the end with a purchase order or credit card on our secured site. After registration is complete, you will receive notification via e-mail to the director. Once the Council for Opportunity in Education approves each student, you will receive another notification so you can book travel and add travel information to the modification of each registration online. Please download the Portable Document Format (PDF) indicated to have parent permission and accompanying forms signed to send to COE by May 9, 2014.
