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 to one-half of the cost of tuition ($6,100 for 2023). 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 May 23, 2022 (requests received after this date will not be accepted).
