How much does Selah cost?

The true cost of the Selah Leadership Program is over $7,000 per participant.  Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and funders, including the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Jews of Color Field-Building Initiative, Grossberg Abrams Foundation, and the Mandel-Rodis Fund, we are able to offer Selah on a sliding scale from $600 - $1500, based on your organization's or individual budget. This cost includes room, board, materials and training for all 9 full days of the program.  It does not include travel. Selah is a professional development program and therefore, we encourage organizations that an individual works for or represents pay for the program, rather than an individual. We can provide additional documentation to help secure professional development time or funding from one's organization. In circumstances where an organization or the individual is unable to cover the cost of participation, we have additional funding available to ensure that cost alone is not a barrier to participation in the program.

NOTE: If your organization will not cover tuition, please be in touch. We have a different price scale based on income and are committed to working with you to make participation possible. 


With the support of generous donors, and in loving memory of Nancy Schwartz Sternoff z”l (Cohort 4 alumna), we are also pleased to announce the establishment of the Nancy Schwartz Sternoff Fund for Women Changemakers. In keeping with Nancy’s stalwart support for Jewish women’s leadership, the Fund was established to ensure that self-identified women can access the transformative experience of Selah by removing financial barriers to participation, including travel, lodging, and other related expenses. Further information about the fund, including application guidelines, will be shared with participants in future cohorts as well as with the Selah Network.
