Tuition for Class 22 is $80,000 USD for the two-year Kauffman Fellows Program. Fellows are responsible for tuition, regardless of financial arrangements made with their firm or other third parties.

Tuition covers all modules, educational materials, academic mentoring, and professional development, exclusive of transportation and lodging. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferrable.


The Kauffman Fellows Program provides a limited number of scholarships. All of our scholarships are based on a work-study commitment, in which the Fellow agrees to contribute to Kauffman Fellows projects.
