With some hard work and dedication, you can reach your Summit goals.
A new school year has started and we’ve been busy planning our 2018 Leadership Summits. Over 1,000 student leaders from all around the world attended the Summits last summer, and even more will be joining us next year.
As we talk with families about the programs, one of the common questions is about paying for the tuition. While this is a big investment for most, with hard work and creative fundraising strategies it's possible. Here are some great ways to help cover the cost of tuition:
We are very excited to be able to expand scholarships for 2018 Summits! We will be awarding several need- and merit-based scholarships based on financial need, scholastic achievement, and community involvement. Find out more details and get your application here.
CONTESTS AND AWARDS
Throughout the months leading up to the program we will have several opportunities for you to participate in contests for a chance to win funds toward your tuition. Get involved, show what you've got, and see your efforts pay off. To hear about these contests and awards, like our Facebook page.
You might be surprised to find out that most of our students fundraise for the Summits. Whether you are raising a portion or the entire tuition, it can be done! To help, each #FundFriday we will be posting a new fundraising idea on this blog, so be sure to stay tuned. To be sure you don't miss any, sign up for our our newsletter on the right. These ideas come from students just like you, so know it’s possible!
FLEX PAYMENT PLANS
And last but not least, to make it a bit more manageable, we offer flexible payment plans. You can choose from one of the following:
Equal Monthly Payments: After the initial registration deposit, the balance is divided by the number of months before the program and payments are automatically withdrawn from a credit card or bank account each month. It’s a great way to break it up!
Installment Plan: This plan has scheduled amounts every 60 days or so. The payments are not automatic, so this plan offers you the most flexibility if you plan to fundraise. Making smaller payments as you go is much easier than paying the whole tuition at once!
HELP IS A CLICK OR CALL AWAY
Check back here often for new ideas and inspirations from students just like you. And know that we are always here to help. If you run into roadblocks or simply need to bounce ideas off someone, call us.
