The Kint institute is committed to providing its training program in a manner that is both accessible and meaningful for potential participants who represent diverse socio-economic realities.
We offer a three-tiered payment approach, based on the economic justice model developed by Alexis J. Cunningfolk. This model is rooted in an inherent trust that applicants choose their socio-economic category truthfully. Below are the general costing categories; please refer to the Green Bottle diagram for details and to calculate where you fit. Please note that applicants at all three tiers can request a payment plan that disperses payments throughout the training year in 3 installments.
$2100 – this is the true cost of our training program. This category is for those who consider themselves able to easily meet their basic needs and who are mostly comfortable covering the additional costs of living.
$1800 – This cost is for those who can meet basic needs but have to budget carefully, and therefore may experience some stress, in order to afford life “extras” like trainings, vacations, etc.
$1500 – This rate is for those who experience challenges meeting basic needs and affording daily living costs, and would not otherwise be able to attend our training. There are a limited number of spaces at this rate. In recognition of historic and systemic economic injustice, priority will be given to BIPOC applicants.
