Program for Inclusive Education Notre Dame Cost StructureTuition and Cost Structure 

The total cost of the PIE Program is $10,850. PIE is aware of the financial sacrifice for participation and we want to make programming accessible to as many Catholic educators as possible. To further this mission, we have been blessed with the ability to award every participant a $2,000 Inclusive Educator Scholarship. This scholarship is in addition to the needs-based financial support included in the application. Please note that applying for additional needs-based funding does not guarantee additional support; however, PIE will do everything possible to assist with this financial commitment. Beyond the Inclusive Educator and needs-based scholarships, Title funding at the school/diocesan levels can be used for participation.

For questions regarding the application process, please contact Associate Director Beth Eslton, Ed.S., at 574-631-7158 or . We look forward to welcoming PIE Cohort 2 in the summer of 2018. Please consider joining us on this journey!
