Delta Force Leadership Academy Funding
Each chapter is expected to send at least one member to the Strength: Emerging Leadership Experience. Because there are a limited number of undergraduate spots at Leadership Academy, the Fraternity will allow the first registrant from each chapter. Additional registrants will be put on a waiting list. After these dates, if there are more spots to be filled, those on the waiting list will be given a spot.
Registration for the Empowerment: Advanced Leadership Experience is limited to approximately 14 members.
The Delphi Foundation has committed funding to cover the bulk of the registration cost for each participant. Once registered, each participant will be required to pay only $80 of the $750 registration fee per participant. This portion of the registration costs must be submitted at the time of registration.
The $750 registration fee covers all transportation to/from the Academy site from airport, meals, basic lodging, all Academy events and sessions, and Academy takeaways..
The remaining $670.00 balance for each registration ($750.00 minus the initial $80 payment) will be resolved first by utilizing available funding from their university, second by the Leadership Academy Fund through the Delphi Foundation.
