Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute Guidelines

TIME COMMITMENT & ATTENDANCE POLICY:
The three-month program includes nine (9) program sessions between September and November; Classes are held on Tuesday mornings from 8:30 a..m. -Noon; a class project; social gatherings; reading a study book of approximately 250 pages, and a culminating graduation event. These activities will be augmented by the opportunity to be placed in an area of service in the Chattanooga area arts community.

The success of the program depends on the full commitment of each participant to attend all program sessions, arrive on time and participate fully. While we recognize that emergencies do arise, more than two unexcused absenses will result in dismissal from the program and forfeiture of tuition.

PROGRAM FEES:
The program fee is $300.00 and may be paid on or before the first class. Payment plans are available upon request. Do not include payment with this application.

NOTE: Partial scholarships are available and will be awarded based on need. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, please submit a letter expressing your interest in the program and explaining why it is important that you receive scholarship support in order to participate. It will also be helpful if you can let us know how much you are able to contribute. Generally, scholarships are for 50% of the tuition. Please email this letter to Rodney@artsbuild.com.
