Our standard cancellation policy applies for scholarship applicants. As this is a partial award, it will not cover your entire fee.

Your deposit reserves your space on the program. It will be applied to your total program cost; it is not an additional fee. If you cancel before your detailed application is due, we will refund your deposit less a $200 cancellation fee. If you cancel after that date, we will refund all payments made less your deposit and any non-refundable expenses. If for any reason, we cannot accept you into the program, you will receive a full refund of the deposit.
