Important news for all potential field course participants!
SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES OPEN ON SEPTEMBER 1
If you are dying to take one of our exciting new field courses (in December, January or February) but you are not sure you have all the funds you need, we have solutions for you. We are offering a minimum of two full scholarships for each field course that cover all expenses (food, lodging, activities, equipment, and training), except travel to the pickup point. One scholarship per course will be available to anyone, worldwide, and the second scholarship will be available only to citizens and residents of the country in which each course is taking place. A person may submit a maximum of two scholarship applications per season, for two different field courses. The scholarship application period opens September 1, 2017 and will close 6 weeks later, on October 15, 2017. Visit the SCHOLARSHIP PAGE to explore the essay prompts and get started on your application.
PEER-TO-PEER FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES OPEN NOW!
Reliably winning a scholarship is hard. We get dozens of applicants for our more popular courses. So in the event that you don’t get a scholarship, we have another exciting funding option for you. We can now set up a personal crowd-funding platform for you, that is fully integrated into each course option! You can use this platform to raise funds to offset your course fees. To begin, all you need to do is register for a course. In the online application you will be asked to indicate if you would like to use crowd-funding. Once we receive your application we will send you information on how to customize your crowd-funding page, to make it the most effective tool to appeal to your network. If your campaign goes well, you are even guaranteed a refund on the downpayment for the course!
