Application Process

The class size is limited to 24 participants. Admission is competitive and based upon a telephone interview once the application has been received. Competitive and need-based scholarships are available and a request for scholarship can be made on the program application itself. Applications are accepted year-round but must be received at least two weeks before the start of each course (typically mid-August).

Applications require general contact information, a description of your organization and your role in it and answers to the following questions:

  • Why do you want to attend this program? What do you hope to gain?
  • What board-level issue are you trying to tackle in the coming year?
  • A short description of your organization and its composition
  • A short description of your role
