Program Cost

Notre Dame is committed to reducing the barriers that make graduate studies a challenge financially, especially for Catholic school leaders serving in under-resourced schools and low-income communities. We are devoted to helping Remick Leaders secure additional funding and are able to offer needs-based scholarships to all candidates so that finances never prohibit participation in the program.

The total cost of tuition for the Remick Leadership Program for the 2017-18 school year is $49,440. Through the generous support of Mary Ann Remick and the University of Notre Dame, each Remick Leader receives a $27,000 scholarship upon admission, reducing the total cost over the course of the program to $22,440.

Last year, all incoming Remick Leaders who requested additional support towards this remaining out-of-pocket cost received additional scholarship funding to support their participation in the program. These scholarships made it possible for 85% of the incoming class to reduce the remaining cost of the program to less than $9,000, on average. Often times, even this remaining amount was covered through support from the school, diocese, title funds, personal education awards or savings accounts.

As you apply, please contact April Garcia for specific information regarding scholarship support. Graduate students are also eligible to apply for student loans and flexible payment plans through Notre Dame’s Office of Financial Aid. For more information, visit the website at
