Additionally, the annual awards dinner has developed into a showcase of the significant academic talents and successes of “CLD Scholars” — CLD youth participants who have achieved distinction by being awarded scholarships from educational institutions for reaching their intellectual and educational potential. In 2017, college, community and university partners awarded $3.1 million in scholarships to 49 CLD Alumni.
