The CharacterStrong Training Scholarship

We believe that education is the best way to change the world. We want to promote schools and staff and students who are doing amazing things to promote character, kindness, and servant-leadership. So, we have created the CharacterStrong Scholarship.

For this round, we are giving away free and discounted registrations to our CharacterStrong Educators Summit - a 2 day training for passionate educators where we will be teaching some life-changing principles of leadership, asking big questions, sharing expertise from great teachers and great schools, and learning some practical ways to teach tough concepts to change young peoples' hearts.
