Tuition Waiver

In an effort to ensure class diversity, a few partial tuition waivers are available to support nonprofit and entrepreneurial candidates.  All applicants are responsible for at least 50% tuition.  Tuition waivers are awarded solely on the basis of documented financial need and availability of funds.  Proof of financial need may be requested.

Dietary Restrictions

Should you be selected for Leading Edge, we need to know if you have any dietary restrictions as meals are served during program days. Please be as specific as possible or type NONE if you have no restrictions.

Program Calendar

The size and makeup of each class is carefully considered to ensure that it is broad based, representing a variety of professional, economic, social and ethnic backgrounds.  This means many highly qualified applicants cannot be accepted the first year they apply.  We encourage you to re-apply should you not be accepted this year.
