What is the cost of the program?
The tuition rate for the 2017-2018 class is $2,150. The tuition cost for the 2018-2019 class will be announced shortly. Since LPR is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we have been fortunate to have a Board of Directors who make large financial contributions to subsidize the cost of the program. The full cost of the program to LPR is $6,500 per person.
Are full scholarships offered?
No. However, partial scholarships are offered on a competitive basis.
How likely am I to get a partial scholarship?
