Tuition Assistance guidelines for The Senior Leaders Program & The Developing Leaders Program

  • You must be a full time employee of a 501(c)(3) organization.
  • We determine need for tuition assistance based on the organization's most recent Audited Financial Statement or 990. Typically, only organizations whose annual revenue is less than $5 million are granted tuition assistance.
  • Full scholarships are not available.
  • Our funding, in the past, has allowed us to grant up to a 50 percent scholarship from some organizations.
  • Scholarships are allocated on a sliding scale, based on agency need.
  • Sponsorship funds are based on support we receive from foundations for participants from their grantee organizations or for those working in particular fields of service or geographic locations.
  • Additional tuition assistance from specific foundations and intermediaries may also be available.
  • We also encourage applicants to work with their agency's development director to seek support from their funders and to apply to the program regardless of financial need.
  • You must apply and be accepted into the program before we begin to determine your organization's eligibility for tuition assistance.
