The LBJ Women's Campaign School is committed to training the most talented women in politics. Our commitment to affordability means making it possible for women to gain the skills and the network they need to be leaders in public life, regardless of income.
What is the cost to participate?
In-State Tuition: Thanks to the generosity of Texas Woman's University Center for Women in Politics & Public Policy, Texas residents are now eligible for full tuition grants. This means that the program is free for admitted Texans.
Out-of-State Tuition and Tuition for Full-Time Students: The cost to participate has been reduced from $950 to $750, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and over 100 individual donors. We are proud to be offering this program below cost in order to create a democracy that is more equitable and just. By investing in women, we are investing in our communities. For out of state participants, we encourage women to fundraise for their tuition, and we also have scholarships available based on financial need. To apply for financial aid, please fill out the form on our website. If you have any questions please see our financial aid FAQ section under the "apply" tab or please contact Executive Director Amy Kroll at email@example.com. We are here to help.
Who is eligible for the full tuition grants from Texas Woman's University?
To be eligible for the grants from Texas Woman's University you must be a Texas resident. Full-time undergraduate and graduate students are NOT eligible for this grant. If you are a Texas resident accepted to the LBJ Women's Campaign School, you will be asked to fill out a check request form, W-9 and direct deposit form, and sign a letter of acceptance that designates the rules of the grant and that you accept them. If you have questions about your eligibility, please email Amy Kroll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I gain access to a computer to participate in the program?
Yes; Texas residents in need of a computer may receive funding for a computer based on financial need, thanks to the generosity of Texas Woman's University. The eligibility requirements for the computers are the same as for the full tuition grants from Texas Woman's University.
Can I fundraise my participation fee?
Yes! We encourage every woman to practice their fundraising skills and reach out to their network to help with tuition and travel. Fundraising is a critical campaign skill and we urge you to begin practicing now. By fundraising your tuition you are also opening up financial assistance to those with clear financial need.
When will I find out if I received financial assistance?
Shortly after you receive your admissions offer, you will receive a notification of financial assistance. We are fully committed to helping every woman attend this program regardless of income. In the case that the financial aid package does not meet your financial need, please email email@example.com. We are here for you.
Does the admissions committee weigh financial assistance into the decision process?
No, the admissions committee doesn't know whether or not you've requested financial assistance. The members of the committee will be weighing your leadership, commitment to public service and experiences!
