BGE Awards School of Living a $2,500 grant for permaculture scholarships!
We are pleased to announce that BGE has awarded School of Living a grant to provide partial scholarships for our upcoming Home-Scale Permaculture Design Course that starts on Sept. 14, 2013. The purpose of the scholarships is to make the course accessible to a broad range of people who may not otherwise be able to afford the course, including people of diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, and to support people who are dedicated to using permaculture in service to their local community through nonprofit or educational projects. Scholarship funds will be allocated based on the following criteria: 1) financial need; 2) diversity; and 3) to support students who intend to apply their permaculture skills to a project that is sponsored by a nonprofit organization or a public school. The scholarships will pay a portion of the tuition of those who are selected. All students must contribute at least half ($500) towards their tuition. Each scholarship recipient will be expected to attend all classes, complete a final design project and the homestudy component of the course, and receive a certificate.
Application Deadline: August 23, 2013.
Results will be announced by August 30, 2013
