In spring 2016, KPMG launched a new charitable initiative, the KPMG Future Leaders Program, focused on developing future generations of women leaders. Funded by proceeds from the KPMG Women's PGA Championship and KPMG Women's Leadership Summit, sixteen deserving, top performing high school girls were selected by the Office of Condoleezza Rice to participate in the inaugural KPMG Future Leaders Program – Class of 2016. Here is a recap video summarizing the key highlights from the 2016 KPMG Future Leaders Program that included one of your very own students!
The Office of Condoleezza Rice is now accepting applications for the Class of 2017. The students selected for the program receive:
1) A KPMG Future Leaders Scholarship of $10,000 per year for 4 years of college
2) A three-day KPMG Future Leaders Retreat with Condoleezza Rice at Stanford University this summer, which will include leadership training, career development seminars and an introduction to golf clinic
3) A pairing with a mentor for one-year through the KPMG Future Leaders Mentoring Program, the mentor being a female executive leader that attended KPMG Women's Leadership Summit
I am reaching out to you today because I know you work with inspiring girls who might benefit from this opportunity. We want the application to reach as many qualified young women as possible, and we cannot do it without your help.
Attached is the complete application, which includes an overview of the program, instructions on how to apply and a list of specific criteria needed to qualify. Also attached is a letter for you, from Dr. Condoleezza Rice, the 66th U.S. Secretary of State, and Lynne Doughtie, KPMG's Chairman & CEO, describing the vision and purpose of the program, and a one-page snapshot of the program. Please share the application with your qualifying girls and urge them to apply for this wonderful opportunity.
Applications are due to the Office of Condoleezza Rice at Stanford University by January 30, 2017. The winners will be selected and notified by April 30, 2017.
