    The sponsoring organization is asked to cover all of the cost. Tuition is non-refundable and is payable in full at time of acceptance unless other arrangements are made with NORLI.

    To assure the diversity of the program, financial assistance based on need and class composition, is extended once selection has been made to those persons or organizations who are unable to meet the tuition requirements.

    Tuition Grant Application form. The Selection Committee will not see this form until after the selection process.
