Tuition and Leadership Grants

Applications will be accepted any time up to midnight on Thursday, August 15, 2019.

Tuition: Tuition is $2,100. Please note tuition helps keep the program sustainable through the long term. However, the Women’s Fund remains committed to education access and therefore encourages anyone interested to apply regardless of ability to cover tuition cost. If you are admitted, we will work with you to make the program affordable.

Payment options: The Women’s Fund is committed to ensuring the participation of all highly qualified applicants. If you are admitted into LIPPI, payment plans can be arranged as requested.

Leadership Grants: Thanks to the generosity of the Women’s Fund donors, corporate partners, and LIPPI alumnae, leadership grants are available to partially cover the cost of tuition. Our supporters appreciate knowing that participants demonstrate their commitment to the program by making a personal contribution as well. Our recommendation is that each participant makes a personal contribution of at least $300.

Apply for a leadership grant by indicating the grant amount you require in the space provided in the application. Selection for LIPPI is need-blind; selection committee members will not be told if, or how much, financial assistance is requested. Leadership Grant requests are kept confidential and reviewed by administrative staff only after an applicant has been granted admittance into the program.
