Student Leadership Congress 2018

29th Annual
National Student Leadership Congress

Request for Student Applications

Attention Directors

It’s time to nominate your outstanding rising juniors or seniors to serve as delegates to the Council for Opportunity in Education’s National Student Leadership Congress (NSLC).  Please select students who are ready for a challenging and intensive learning experience.  It is important that student representatives come prepared for the rigors of a program that includes full schedules, requires open minds, and ensures leadership growth.   

The registration fee is $1,350 which includes housing, meals, admission fees for tours, NSLC T-shirts, and transportation while the student is in Washington D.C.  The registration fee is an allowable project expense (See OMB Supercircular).  The sending project is also responsible for travel expenses and making travel arrangements to Washington D.C.  (Reagan DCA airport and Union Station Amtrak only)  

The Delegate Application and fee can be completed online by clicking on the New Registration button below.   We will not accept late or incomplete submissions and will end registration once 150 completed applications and accompanying registration fees are received. You will first have to enter your Director information and then you will be able to continue and  add as many students as you want.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at (202) 347-7430 or email me at
