Class of 2018 Applications

Applications are now being accepted for the Leadership Class of 2018!

No exceptions or extensions will be made. Click here to view the full application in PDF format.

A selection committee of Leadership Baton Rouge alumni will review all the applications and notify applicants before the end of June, 2017.

NEW THIS YEAR: The application form can be saved and resumed later.  You will be able to save a partially completed form by capturing the unique form URL.  Have the link sent to your email and save it.  When you’re ready to revisit the form, click or paste the URL into a browser and the form will reload with any fields you’d already completed.  After you make changes to the form, re-save and re-send the form URL to your email.

You will have 30 days to return and finish filling out the form, after which time your data will be lost.  However, this timer is reset every time you re-save the form.

The link for saving a form can be found at the bottom of each page of the form.  Once you click SUBMIT, the form URL is no longer valid, and you will not have access to your application form or its data.

You may use this pdf form of the application to review the questions, gather required information, draft your answers in a Word document, then copy and paste answers into the online form.
