Enrollment in the Hamilton Leaders Academy also includes the following: a $500 cash scholarship; an autographed copy of Richard Brookhiser's Alexander Hamilton, American; an autographed copy of William Chrystal's Hamilton by the Slice; a proclamation signed by Doug Hamilton, the fifth great-grandson of Alexander Hamilton; a Hamilton lapel pin courtesy of the Hamilton family and letters of congratulations.

    The Hamilton Leaders Academy is a no student cost program that helps students gain acceptance to college and transition successfully to university life and the workforce. The first two years include an "academic-year" curriculum, running from September to April, with a week-long summer leadership institute called "Leader Week."
