The program will also cover a number of additional topics such as:

We will review applications on a rolling basis rather than based on the deadline. Unless candidates do not meet minimum requirements, acceptances will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis until we reach capacity. Note: acceptance is not guaranteed, and where possible, priority will be given to professionals who best meet the program’s criteria.
Be sure to observe time zone differences when considering your availability.
Acceptance does not automatically register you for the program. Selected candidates will be required to complete course registration while given instructions for paying program fees.
Your philanthropy education program fee includes tuition, course materials, and access to additional tools and resources.
Fees are subject to change, as are programs, dates, and faculty.
Upon admission, payment details including an invoice and online payment link will be sent by email. Full payment of the invoice confirms your enrollment. Payment is accepted by bank wire transfer, or credit card (American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).
NOTE: Please observe any payment deadlines, as your reservation is not secure until payment is processed. Past the deadline, we may pass available slots onto waitlisted candidates.
At the end of the program, participants will receive a certificate of completion. The program does not offer an accredited degree from Stanford University, and at this time, does not qualify for continuing education credits.
We anticipate circumstances and availability issues arise unexpectedly for our participating professionals.
If you wish to cancel and receive a full refund, you must submit your request in writing at least 20 days prior to the program start date.
