FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The SFLHCC Foundation runs a Fellowship Program that benefits financially disadvantaged minority students who are on a paid lunch program. These students must demonstrate a commitment to hard work and study. The fellowship program handles all expenses for selected students to attend several conferences with top speakers from big corporations in different states of the nation. The Foundation provides business workshops in these cities with community leaders to help create future business leaders and community builders who will learn to participate and help in the continuous growth and revitalization of their communities. The fellows later attend workshops to speak about their experiences before the leadership of the organization demonstrating the personal and educational growth experienced that has helped them become future leaders to their communities.
