Cost + Financial Aid
The cost to attend the YUGA Leadership Summit is $550. This includes room and board at Roger Williams University, as well as all workshops and activities, from July 15 – July 19, 2013.
If you are applying for financial aid, we strongly suggest that you submit your general application at the same time. That way, when we are evaluating your financial aid application alongside other applicants’ applications, we will have more information about you and your interest in the YUGA Leadership Summit.
A request for financial aid will not affect your application. If you cannot attend the Summit unless you receive financial aid, please contact us before to submitting your application. Finally, we ask that you only request aid to cover the cost of our program that is too much for you or your family’s financial resources.
In order to be considered for financial aid, please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
