NLSJ Intensive Scholarship Application
It is our greatest desire that all persons who want engage Nonviolent Leadership for Social Justice be able to do so. As part of our commitment to ensuring class diversity, we do not want access to funds to be the only barrier for attendance. This is even more important given the extreme economic uncertainty many are experiencing as the result of COVID-19’s impacts on society.

We welcome and encourage creative problem solving. We would like to be in dialogue with each person interested in attending our sessions to see if we can identify a combination of financial assistance, fundraising, and payment plans that would enable your engagement.

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

Submitting applications for financial assistance as early as possible helps us to assess need and available resources.

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.
