Tuition can be paid by the individual or by the congregation.

Congregations sending applicants to Russell Lockwood Leadership School (RLLS) must pay a Congregational Fee of $350 for their team of any number (one applicant or more). Congregations participating in a webinar can receive a $50 reduction in this fee. Any UUA webinar will do (to meet the $50 reduction—on any topic, from any region. Your entire congregation does not need to view a webinar. The viewing could be for a particular team, such as a stewardship team. The webinar should be one that's already been viewed by at least part of your congregation, or one that has been scheduled to be viewed before RLLS begins. Learn more about UUA webinars

Attention, Congregations

  • Your congregation’s Board must designate the applicants they wish to send to RLLS. The President or Minister must submit the Congregational Endorsement to nominate the candidates your congregation wishes to endorse. Please include a couple of sentences about the candidates, including their current or future leadership roles.
  • Be sure to submit the Congregational Fee of $350 by June 30. This is a flat fee—it does not change whether you are enrolling one or more leaders from your congregation. Congregations participating in a webinar can receive a $50 reduction in this fee.
  • You are encouraged to support the tuition for your enrollees. Consider devoting a Sunday collection to this investment in your congregation’s success. Or, mount a special fundraiser, solicit targeted donations from established leaders who are ready to support their successors, and invite gifts from those who are unable to attend, but devoted to your congregation’s thriving future!

Grants to Congregations

Grants of up to $200 may be available to assist congregations with financial needs—this may be applied to the Congregational Fee only. Congregations are encouraged to apply for grant monies as soon as possible, as funds are limited. Contact Administrative Dean, Diane Larson, at rlls [at] uua [dot] org for more information.
