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.
How much does the program cost?
The tuition to attend is $750 and this does not cover travel expenses. The LBJ Women's Campaign School thanks the board and major sponsors who raised funds to subsidize tuition to bring it to the community for less than its original cost of $1500 cost per participant.
If $750 is not feasible for you, or if you would like to pay more than $750 to help subsidize the cost for another attendee, please fill out the form below.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
The application period for the inaugural cohort of the LBJ Women's Campaign School is now closed, and as such we are not accepting financial aid requests at this time. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates on when applications will reopen.
