Seminar Application Answer

Scholarship Application

Scholarships are not awarded on an "either-or" basis. Applicants should apply for all desired scholarships. Application for either scholarship will not limit your chances of being awarded both scholarships. 
Tuition reimbursement scholarships will be awarded in the form of a tuition refund following your FEE Seminar. Qualifying applicants will be reimbursed the full tuition fee within 3-5 business days after completion of the seminar. The reimbursement will be posted to the card used to pay the tuition fee.

Students who apply for a Tuition Scholarship and qualify will be notified of their award within 2-3 business weeks.

Through a partnership with the Richard Seth Staley Foundation, we are able to offer a limited number of travel reimbursement scholarships (paid at the conclusion of your seminar). Qualifying applicants will be reimbursed up to $500 in travel expenses after attending the seminar, and submitting valid receipts. Qualifying expenses include airline tickets or mileage reimbursement of 58 cents per mile from your home address if driving a personal vehicle.  

Rental cars, gas purchases, check bags (air travel), bus, and train tickets are not applicable travel costs.
