We are now accepting applications for cohort #16 for the Fall of 2020.

We will accept applications for cohort #16 for the fall of 2020 and continue collecting applications until cohort 16 is full. After a nomination and/or email stating the intent to submit an application is received, a place will be held until all application materials are on file. At that time the full application packet will be reviewed and acceptance will be determined. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out as each application procedure concludes.

The fee for the 2-year program is $20,000. An invoice will be sent out before the first Residential Session in the fall.
