Tuition for the program is $6,000 for approximately 175 hours of leadership development training, individual and small group coaching, lodging and meals at the 3-day Opening Retreat, catering on retreat days and access to Coro alumni and cross-program events.


Participants are encouraged to seek their employer’s or another sponsor’s support.  Scholarships are available, with special consideration for applicants paying out of pocket and with highest need relative to the request pool.  We are committed to building cohorts that reflect the demographics of New York City and in strengthening traditionally underrepresented groups in leadership roles. 


Payment in-full, or an agreement with Coro on a specific payment plan is required before the program begins (the acceptance letter will include any scholarship and payment plan options).  For all participants, the first payment is due on Monday, September 8th, 2019 and 100% of the tuition must be paid in full by Monday, February 10th, 2020. 


Do not let financial concerns prevent you from applying.  Our goal is to build a cohort of diverse perspectives and will work with you.  Contact Gia if you have questions.

If you checked that you are requesting scholarship assistance, please complete the section below.  We use the honor system for your financial information and do not request paper tax documentation - please be 100% accurate in your responses.  Our scholarship awards are based on demonstrated need, and any information that you provide will be used for that purpose only and will be kept in confidentiality.  Full scholarships are not offered.
