Sadie Nash Leadership Project


The Summer Institute requires an initial commitment of six weeks. The summer program lasts for six weeks from July 5th – August 12th, 2011 Monday through Friday from 10:00am until 4:00pm (on Fridays, we have special events and the hours are different).  The Summer Institute is located in Manhattan.  There will be required pre-session orientation meetings in early June to prepare you for the summer, and to provide an opportunity to meet staff and to get to know each other.  During the summer you and your peers will take interesting classes, meet women involved in different forms of leadership, take workshops on issues that are important to you, go on trips and explore your own and others’ leadership.

To help you cover your expenses (food and transportation) during the summer you will receive a stipend during the program for everyday that you are there ($10 for lunch and a Metrocard). You only receive the stipend when you are at the program because it covers those two direct costs that come with attendance.

SNLP does not allow more than 3 absences during the summer program.If you have valid reasons for those absences (illness, family emergency) that you did not know about prior to the summer, we will let you return to the program the following summer. SNLP requires attendance for both the strength of the community and to enhance your experience. Also, at SNLP two late arrivals counts as an absence. Please contact us if you have more questions about these policies.


We ask you to complete the following to apply to the SI (please contact us if you would like help with writing the essay or filling out the application):

This is a chance for you to find out more about us, and for us to get to know you better. We will set the interview up for a time that works for you. You should not be concerned about the interview—it is really just a chance for us to meet you and understand more about you.
