Financial Aid information
  • A limited amount of partial tuition assistance is available to participants of the Leadership Howard County program, with preference to those who are self-paying, employees of non-profit organizations, small businesses and faith communities. The amount awarded is based on particular circumstances of the participant, as well as the number of requests received each year. Traditionally, awards have not exceeded one-third of the cost of tuition ($5,800 for 2022). Requesting tuition assistance does not influence the selection process and is totally confidential. A financial disclosure may be requested and each request will be reviewed independently of the selection process. If tuition assistance is being requested, please complete this form and submit, along with the application, no later than June 15, 2021 (requests received after this date will not be accepted).
  • Please note that students will not be permitted to begin the program unless payment has been made in full or arrangements have been made for a payment plan.

  • Please note that if you will be paying full/partial tuition, or installments, via a credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover), an additional fee representing 3% of the total charge will be imposed to cover credit card processing costs. In addition, there will be a $25 returned-check fee charged in the event of insufficient funds.
