The cost of the Uptown Fellows is $6,500. This amount can be paid prior to the start of the program or on an incremental basis, to be agreed upon with the director. We encourage Fellows to seek financial prayer and support from family, friends, church community, and mentors. If, upon acceptance, you would like advice and resources on how to fundraise for your Fellows tuition, please let us know.
We consider applications on a rolling basis but the deadline for each year’s class is on or around June 1. Our goal is to notify applicants with a decision within two-three weeks after the online interview is conducted.
