Scholarship and work trade APPLICATION FORM - FALL CORE IMMERSION PROGRAM (2017)
As part of our commitment to social justice, inclusion, accessibility, and the diversity of our village, we are offering a limited number of partial scholarships and work trade positions for our upcoming 2017 Fall Core Immersion course. Priority will be given to applicants who identify as part of a marginalized population that is affected by systemic oppression and/or lacks access or privilege to participate in a program of this nature - including but not limited to POC (persons of color), LGBTQ, youth, Elders, and those with severe physical impairments, but all are welcome to apply.
Please note that these are *partial* scholarships and work trades - participants will be asked to contribute a portion of their tuition from their own funds, or by raising money through their community. We also encourage participants to also reach out to friends and family for support for their participation, through social media campaigns or other means.
All applicants will also be required to complete a 30 minute online interview with one of
the program Co-Directors. Please complete the following application form, and we will contact you within 24 hours to set up your interview time.
How did you hear about EOL?
What is calling you to participate in the Ecology of Leadership at this time? What do you hope to gain from participating?
How are you currently serving in the world? Where are you engaging your leadership?
Do you currently serve an organization? If so, which, and what is your role? Please provide a website if there is one.
What passions, interests, and gifts do you bring?
What is one big dream you hold for your life or service in the world?
What is going really well in your life and leadership right now, and where are you experiencing the greatest challenges? Briefly describe.
What part of your life do you feel most called to grow right now, and what aspects of your leadership do you want to develop at this time?
How could receiving a scholarship or work trade opportunity support you and your community at this time?
All participants are asked to contribute a portion of their tuition. How much would you be able to stretch to contribute, either paid up front or with a payment plan (distributed over the months of the program)? Please note that full tuition for the program is $3995, and that the more you are able to contribute, the more people may be able to benefit from partial scholarships and work trades.
What kinds of work trade are you qualified for and interested to contribute?
Are there any conditions or personal needs that you feel are important for the facilitators to know about, or current life circumstances that might prevent you from fully participating in the program? Please include any psychiatric conditions, medical conditions, or emotional or chemical imbalances for which you have been diagnosed, and if so how you are being supported in working with this (e.g. therapy, medication, exercise, etc.). We will hold this confidential.
Each weekend starts at 9am on Friday and ends at 5pm on Sunday. Participants are expected to stay on site for the entire weekend, and to participate fully in all 3 days. In between sessions, you will be given assignments that may take around 6-10 hours of time each month. Can you foresee any challenges meeting these requirements?
Are you able to attend all 6 weekend sessions including evening programming? The specific dates are November 10-12, December 8-10, January 19-21, February 16-18, March 16-18, and April 13-15. If you know of a conflict, please describe.
Do you feel willing and able to fully commit to the program if admitted? If not, please describe what is in the way of that.
