Earthskills Rendezvous Scholarship Application
Welcome to the scholarship application for Rivercane Rendezvous 2020, happening April 20-26!
The purpose of the ERI scholarship program is to increase the accessibility of Rendezvous' events to people with systemic/systematic access disadvantages. A systemic disadvantage is a condition where there is something in the system itself that gives someone or something an advantage over others. Systematic is a condition where someone or something gains an advantage over others because they are doing things in a specific way.
While many of us are challenged by modern culture, there are groups of people who have been profoundly effected by these kinds of disadvantages and inequalities, especially over time. That is who this fund was created to support. Included in these groups (but not limited to) are: Black/African American folks, American Indian/Native American/Indigenous folks, Hispanic/Latino(a) folks, Asian Americans, other People of Color, refugees, people with English as their second language and at risk youth.
Our goals are to:
->Help ERI better reflect the general population diversity
->Provide a free and supported ERI experience for those who could not come otherwise for reasons including financial hardship
->Serve as a bridge for scholarship recipients to become regular attendees and part of the ERI family
->Expand the pool of potential work traders, instructors, staff members, and leadership council members
->Encourage interest in earth skills/outdoor education in participant home communities.
Earthskills Rendezvous Inc., Mission Statement is to support sustainable lifestyles through educational gatherings, practicing experiential archaeology, primitive technology, and bioecology.
