  • The Kaplan Educational Foundation (KEF) seeks to eliminate barriers to education for overlooked and underserved students and develop them as leaders for the American workforce and their communities. KEF launched the Kaplan Leadership Program (KLP) in 2006 to do just that. KLP is a unique and trailblazing model that addresses the needs of the "whole" student for low-income, high-potential Community College students.

    The Kaplan Leadership Program is looking for students that understand the importance of a great education in building a successful career. If you are a high achiever with ambitions to challenge yourself and become a leader in your profession and community, apply! We are looking for students that meet the following criteria:

    - Enrollment in an accredited associate's degree program in the New York City area
    - Minimum GPA of 3.3
    - Completion of 12 to 30 non-remedial college credits by application deadline
    - U.S. citizen or permanent resident
    - Current recipient of federal and/or state financial aid
    - Member of an underserved or underrepresented population
    - Desire to transfer to a bachelor's program immediately upon completion of associate's degree
