Cost of the Program

Typically, a program of this duration and nature with access to highly personalized one-on-one coaching, group ‘Leader Lab’ sessions, and many more program benefits would cost in the range of $3,500 and $4,500. Through the incredible generosity of donor #StartSmall and our coaches, who offer their services completely pro-bono, we are proud to be able to offer this program at a highly subsidized rate.

We are committed to providing our programs as equitably as possible. We offer a voluntary tiered pricing model for program fees, which helps ensure leaders from diverse geographic, economic and organizational backgrounds gain equal access to our program.

We have designed this program specifically for leaders providing direct support to their communities and may not have access to robust professional development resources. Our tiered pricing system allows you to select the program price that best works for you. The selected tier will in no way impact your fellowship experience.


We ask that you consider the following in determining the appropriate pricing tier:


Tier One: $795 — This level is appropriate for direct practice professionals coming from large, well-resourced national or global organizations or agencies, hospitals, privately funded schools, or successful private practices that have allocated funds toward professional development.

Tier Two: $695 — This level is best suited for direct practice professionals in mid to large-size organizations or agencies, hospitals, schools or private practices that have allocated funds toward professional development. If you fall within Tier Three, but are able to split program costs with your organization, this would also be the recommended tier for you.

Tier Three: $595 — This level is best suited for direct practice professionals in mid-sized organizations or agencies, hospitals, schools, or private practices with limited budgets and limited access to professional development resources. If you fall within Tier Four, but are able to split program costs with your organization, this would also be the recommended tier for you.

Tier Four: $495 — This level is best suited for direct practice professionals in small organizations or agencies, hospitals, schools, or private practices with limited budgets and limited or no access to professional development resources.

Tier Five: $395 — This tier is best suited for direct practice professionals with small private practices and/or individuals in budget-constrained non-profits who are covering the program fee without the support of their organization.

Tier Six: $295 — This tier is best suited for direct support professionals working for budget-constrained non-profits with no professional development budgets for their employees and are serving in communities of high need. Additionally, this program fee is appropriate for applicants who come from under-represented and under-resourced communities.


If you are selected to participate in the fellowship program, you will pay your program fee when you confirm your fellowship space.
