While it is unlikely we would be able to offer room and board assistance, we may have funds available depending on the level of contributions we receive from others. We would like to be in dialogue with each person interested in attending to see if we can identify a combination of financial assistance, fundraising, and payment plans that would enable you to attend. We welcome and encourage creative problem solving.
Some of the factors that go into our decisions with respect to financial aid are: - financial need - potential for utilizing an NVC diversity consciousness toward social change - offering NVC to diverse communities, including commitment to working with currently underserved populations.
The deadline for submitting applications for financial assistance is June 10, 2018. Applications will be processed as they come in and we will let you know as soon as possible whether we’re able to meet your request. We encourage people needing financial assistance to apply early as this gives us time to assess the level of need and implement sufficient fundraising efforts. Depending on the level of need and the success of fundraising, applicants might know within a week of submitting an application or by June 30, 2018 at the latest.
About work-study: We don’t have a budget for work-study as such. We award financial aid based on need, and request assistance from those who are willing to assist our work in ways that they would enjoy. Such contributions of time and effort, which are made both by people who receive financial aid and those who don’t, play a major role in keeping our costs down and increasing the amount of money available for financial aid.
