Application & Deadlines

Our aim to create a cadre of professionals who will gain from the program, and from each other as they master the program content, interact with our expert faculty, and share their experiences, ideas, and perspectives. With this in mind, the application process is designed to allow you to examine and share your thinking related to the field, your career objectives, and personal development.


The application is available for the 2015-2016 academic year.  In the application, you will be asked to provide basic information and provide a personal statement in response (500 words or less). You are also asked to email your resume/curriculum vitae (CV), as well as a letter of recommendation from a professional reference.


The application deadline is August 28 for the 2015-16 year. The deadline has been extended to September 21 for higher education professionals.

For independent school (K-12) professionals, we are now at capacity and will not be accepting any more applications for this year. With the success of the SSATB scholarship program, we have had many more applicants than anticipated and have completed our 2014-15 cohort.

Generally, participants will be notified within 3 weeks of the receipt of the application. However, for those applying after August 28, we will expedite review to notification within 1 week of the receipt of the completed application.


Tuition for the program is $10,000 and is payable by the first day of the course, unless otherwise arranged. A three-part payment plan is available upon request.
