WHO SHOULD APPLY?The 2018 Emerge Louisiana Candidate Boot Camp has been developed for Democratic women who are running for office in 2018 and 2019. The curriculum is focused on the skills women need to turbocharge their campaigns this year. Only candidates who are seriously planning to run in 2018 and 2019 are eligible for the Boot Camp.
If you are not a candidate for public office in 2018 or 2019, but thinking about running in the future, we recommend applying to Emerge Louisiana's six-month training program. Those applications will open in the Fall of 2018; classes begin January 2019.
TUITIONTuition for the Emerge Louisiana Candidate Boot Camp is $300. A deposit of $150 is due upon acceptance and the other $150 is due upon the first day of the Boot Camp. Payment plans can be arranged. Once accepted to the Boot Camp, you will receive a link to pay your tuition online. Tuition covers our costs for trainer travel, the meeting location, training materials and meals.
Once you complete Boot Camp you will be considered an Emerge Louisiana Boot Camp Alumna and will have access to our alumnae resources, as well as continuing education opportunities for alumnae. Tuition may be paid by personal, or campaign committee accounts. Due to campaign finance regulations, Emerge Louisiana cannot provide scholarships to Boot Camp participants. We do encourage all participants to fundraise to cover, or defray the cost.
