Aspen Executive Seminar
2020 Scholarship Application

Applications reviewed on a rolling basis contingent upon available funds

The Aspen Executive Seminar depends on a diversity of perspectives as participants explore the values that underlie the decisions we make as individuals, organizations, and as a society. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer half tuition in the amount of $6,175 to qualifying applicants.

In general, scholarship funds are reserved for participants from the non-profit sector, some government agencies, and for-profit organizations whose budget does not allow attendance at the full rate.

In every instance, applicants are asked to secure the balance of funding before submitting the scholarship application. An institutional endorsement, including an affirmation of the balance of funds, must accompany each scholarship application (see application for endorsement guidelines).
