Leading EDGE Scholarship Opportunity

Apply to receive funds to the Metro Chamber's 2015 Capitol to Capitol Program

A program of the Sacramento Metro Chamber, Metro EDGE provides opportunities for young professionals to engage with a diverse network, develop critical business skills, give back to our community, and empower themselves through education on issues affecting the Sacramento region. Engaging  in signature Metro Chamber programs is a great way to advance these goals, yet, many young professionals are challenged by limited resources in their pursuit to gain the very resources they need to better their careers and communities.

To help young professionals experience the benefits Metro Chamber programs have provided for so many others, Metro EDGE has established an award program to gift funds to deserving EDGE members interested in participating.

The deadline to apply for funds to participate in the Metro Chamber's Capitol-to-Capitol program is March 23, so interested parties are on a tight deadline. Below are eligibility requirements and a link to apply.


Awards will be given to applicants who show evidence of a commitment to the Metro EDGE mission, leadership abilities, and potential for future contributions to the Sacramento Region and community.

  1. Applicants must have been a Metro EDGE member in good standing for at least two years.
  2. Applicants must be active in Metro EDGE[1].
  3. Applicants must certify availability to attend program[2].
  4. Applicants must be able to contribute or fund raise remaining program costs for participation.
  5. Applicants must complete program application.


Applicants should be exemplary representatives of Metro EDGE as evidenced by:

  1. Metro EDGE Involvement: Evidence of upholding the Metro EDGE mission statement, interest in pursuing the Metro EDGE vision, and overall dedication to driving Metro EDGE and its mission forward.
  2. Professional and Community Engagement: Evidence of involvement, demonstrated accomplishments, and/or leadership positions held in Metro EDGE and other professional organizations, and/or community service.


The awards will not cover a recipient’s entire cost of attending the program. The award recipient will still be responsible to pay such remaining costs. To facilitate the funds sponsorship and marketing, award recipients agree to write a blog article about their experience and takeaways from the program.
