Nonprofits may apply for a Jefferson Leadership Institute scholarship


WATERTOWN — A local nonprofit agency with fewer than 25 full-time employees may get to send one of those workers through the Jefferson Leadership Institute Class of 2015 for free.

The scholarship is available thanks to a collaboration between the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce, which oversees JLI, and the Northern New York Community Foundation. The award covers the $1,000 fee for a member agency or $1,200 for a nonmember outfit.

The leadership development program “immerses participants in community issues throughout 10 full-day sessions and an overnight retreat,” according to a chamber news release. JLI provides participants with a broad knowledge of the north country.

Scholarship applications will be available through the chamber after Saturday. Call 788-4400 for an application, or visit
