The program begins with a mandatory opening retreat in January, followed by eight monthly workshops, and concluding with a mandatory capstone celebration in October.

Participants should expect 8-10 additional hours of work per month outside of program sessions.

Participants may miss only two sessions to remain in the program. Habitual tardiness will count towards an absence.  If you cannot attend a mandatory event, please consider rearranging your schedule or enrolling for a future year.

The 2024 schedule has been adjusted and will be released soon.


Tuition Assistance & Diversity Scholarships:
We encourage all applicants to seek tuition payment/reimbursement from their employer. In cases where the full cost of tuition is a burden for either the employer or the individual, a limited amount of tuition assistance is available on a first come, first serve basis, based on enrollment date. Tuition assistance is based upon demonstrated need and is limited to no more than 50% of the tuition cost. Eligibility for tuition assistance includes, but is not limited to, self-paying individuals or individuals sponsored by a nonprofit organization. To apply for tuition assistance, please submit the tuition assistance request form with your enrollment.

Leadership Columbus also offers a limited number of Diversity Scholarships of $1000 per participant. To apply for a Diversity Scholarship, please submit the Diversity Scholarship application form with your enrollment.
