Costs, scholarships, and payments
We are pleased to announce that for all participants registering by 31 March 2017, the
Leadership Institute offers an early-bird discount on the training fee. Below is our schedule of fees.
|| Deadline for
|| 31 March 2017
|| 31 July 2017
|| 1 September 2017
This tuition (as stated above) includes all lunch meals during the Institute's program, three dinner meals, and transportation to local venues. Participants will incur additional costs for six (6) hotel nights as well as breakfast, their travel costs, two evening meals and any personal expenses while in Syracuse.
Participants who must extend their stay either before or after the Institute should contact Rachel Belkin, TNGO Initiative Graduate Assistant (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make arrangements and the fees will be adjusted accordingly.
We have been able to obtain three scholarships: one full scholarship (covering training fee plus travel and local accommodation and food expenses), offered through the generosity of Perrett Laver, the highly respected Executive Search firm for NGO leaders; and two partial scholarships (covering training fees only) through the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs. Please note that the Perrett Laver Scholarship is only available to applicants from within the Perrett Laver network through an internal selection process. Scholarship opportunities for general applicants are therefore limited, and will be awarded on a competitive basis. In making award decisions, strong priority will be given to participants who are from transnational NGOs founded in the Global South (i.e. not leaders working in the Global South but employed by Global North founded NGOs). All eligible applicants will be automatically considered for the Moynihan scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis until June 30. Therefore, we encourage scholarship eligible participants to apply early, but by June 30 at the latest.
If you are interested in participating in the 2017 Institute and do not receive a scholarship but need funding support, please seek funding from your own organization’s donor pool.

Cancellations received between 15 and 30 days prior to the Leadership Institute will be charged 25%of the total training tuition (2 September -17 September 2017). Cancellation less than 15 days prior to the Leadership Institute will unfortunately result in no refund of tuition (18 September - 1 October 2017).
