Leadership Pittsburgh Facts

  • Leadership Pittsburgh tuition is $5,900 per participant (please note that this is subject to change in the future). Early applications are encouraged. Incentive tuition price for applications submitted by first Friday in April is $5,400. All parts of the application must be complete to be considered.
  • LPInc. is a non-profit organization: Alumni and institutional donations enable us to offer partial scholarships based on need. These are intended, primarily, for participants from the non-profit sector, especially small non-profit organizations. To apply for tuition assistance, please request a tuition assistance form from LPInc. (info@lpinc.org) and return it to the LPInc. office by the application deadline. Tuition-assistance requests do not impact the selection process.
  • Payment plans are available upon request.
  • Credits are assigned to each session and activity.
  • In order to allow for busy professional schedules, a higher number of “credits” are offered than required for completion/graduation (e.g., 36 credits offered; 30 required for completion).
  • The Leadership Pittsburgh Selection Committee considers letters of recommendation in the application process. We strongly encourage each applicant to submit at least two letters of recommendation. Successful applications in prior years tend to be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from applicant’s company CEO/head of business unit in addition to recommendations from other LPInc. alumni. A copy of our alumni directory can be ordered by emailing info@lpinc.org or by calling 412.392.4505.
