This is a two-part fee structure.

The Congregational Fee is always paid by the congregation as a sign of support for the participant's leadership development; in many cases, congregations pay part or all of the tuition fee as well. Participants work directly with their congregations to determine responsibility for the payment of the student's tuition fee.

By June 1, all fees must be paid in full and a letter of recommendation provided by the participant's minister, board president or chair. The letter should state why this participant is recommended for MidWest Leadership School. The letter may be sent by hardcopy or electronically to the school's Registrar (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Adult Students per Congregation:





Congregational Fee





Student's Tuition





Total due by June 1





Remember that no more than 4 from a congregation may attend Youth MWLS, plus no more than 4 may attend Adult MWLS. Example:

2 Youth at Youth MWLS and
3 Adults at MWLS =
5 total but no more than 4 at each school, so that is okay.

For Youth MWLS information and fees, see:
