The overall cost for a single Boost participant is just under $2,000. Detroit Mercy Alumni and other donors have graciously provided scholarships to lower this expense to make the final tuition cost to you just $500. However, CSE strongly believes that no social entrepreneur shall be denied an opportunity to attend our Boost program. We do ask that every effort must be made by participants to pay the full price. Sliding-scale tuition scholarships are available. If needed, the applicant and CSE staff will discuss the details during the interview process. A non-refundable $75 deposit, due 7 days after your acceptance, reserves your seat.
CSE Boost 4 class sessions will occur on Thursdays, 6-9pm, October 5 - December 14, at the University of Detroit Mercy, 4001 W. McNichols Rd., Detroit, MI 48221. After the class sessions, you will participate in a pitch event on January 11. If you would like to apply, please follow these steps carefully:
1. Fill out the application fully and completely so we can best assess your enterprises’ mission, operations, stage of development and your passion to solve social challenges to improve Detroit livelihoods. All the information will be confidential and shared solely among the CSE staff and mentors. The application deadline is September 10, 2017.
2. Please wait to be contacted within 7-10 business days, via email, regarding your follow-up interview.
3. After the interview, we will contact you within a few days regarding your acceptance, non-refundable $75 deposit information, and class cost (sliding scale $200-$500).
4. Once deposit is paid, you are in the class! You will then receive a welcome email before the class begins.
Thank you and hope to see you soon!
