Please note that the Academy application process is competitive as we have limited slots available and usually have 20% more applicants than we can accommodate. Please be sure to answer all questions thoughtfully and thoroughly as the selection committee selects participants primarily upon application responses.

Tuition:Tuition for the 2017 class is $500. However, Transit Alliance believes that individual circumstances should not be a barrier to participation in the Citizens' Academy. Tuition may be paid by the participant, the participant's employer, or by a Transit Alliance scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded after acceptance to the Academy.
The full cost of the Academy is $1,000 per participant for our 7-week program. Your partial tuition helps offset Transit Alliance's out-of-pocket costs for the Citizens' Academy. The Academy includes seven sessions with the region's top presenters, field trip, dinner, and all training materials.
