Society founder Gary Tuerack stated, “We are dream supporters – we build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process. We get people to ask the all-important question ‘What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?’ and then help them to achieve those goals.” Mr. Tuerack continues, “With the National Society of Leadership and Success Scholarship and Grant program we are reinforcing our commitment to build leaders who make a better world. Our vision for this program is to support the next generation of leaders and propel the future careers of those who embody the Society’s values. Offering this scholarship and grant program contributes to our value of dream supporters as we look forward to awarding these scholarships and grants throughout the academic year.”
