For the past four years, Principia College has generously awarded students who complete DiscoveryBound’s National Leadership Council (NLC) Program in good standing a $20,000 scholarship.

We are proud to share that the following 2011 NLC class graduates are attending Principia and have earned this scholarship. Congratulations!

Please join us in recognizing the selfless service and outstanding contributions all NLC participants are making to the Christian Science community and the global society.

What does it mean to be a part of NLC?

The National Leadership Council provides opportunities for young people to discover and explore their interests, values, and talents in a spiritual atmosphere. Teens experience programs that help them deepen their relationship with God, activities that stress the healing effectiveness of Christian Science, leadership training built on a Biblical model of service to God and mankind, and leadership opportunities at the local, national, and international levels.

NLC is accepting applications from current 8th graders for the Class of 2016. If you know of any students who may be interested, please invite them to find out more about the NLC program and the application process. The application deadline is Oct. 10, 2011.

Did you know…

One of NLC’s core curriculum requirements is a two-week service trip during the student’s Junior year in high school. For the past two years, NLC classes have traveled to Peru to help citizens in rural areas become self-sustaining. We encourage you to read their blogs and view the videos documenting how these young Christian Scientists are loving and giving beyond boarders. Combined, these classes donated thousands of hours of community service.

    Have you had an experience with NLC? If so, we’d love to hear about it! Please share if you’re a student, parent, mentor, class leader…

    I’m a parent of an NLC graduate and of a new NLC’er. It is super. Most of the kids start out under a little pressure from parents to do it but then it becomes all about the incredible time they are having. The classes form special bonds and their idea of CS membership changes to one of personal interest. I wish every 8th grader knew about it and could be accommodated in the program. There is such wonderful support from CS alumni that it is financially doable for any sincere student. It is one of the best gifts you could give (or as a student, receive).
