What is ECLF?


For 17 years, your kind support of the Emily Couric Leadership Forum has allowed the awarding of scholarships to young women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in school and community. These 2017 recipients are now finishing up their first semester of college, but past recipients have gone on to become medical professionals, researchers, community organizers, educators, business leaders and more!

We look forward to seeing you at our 18th Annual Leadership Award Luncheon and introducing you to a new group of outstanding young women.

Want to be added to our invitation list to hear about these amazing young leaders? Let us know by emailing info@emilycouricleadershipforum.org or PM us!

Happy New Year to all!
