We invite those who would find attendance prohibitive at this range to contact us and apply for a scholarship. The intensive operates as a non-profit – all money taken in that is in excess of actual operating expenses and stipends is used to fund scholarships for registrants with need. To date, we have been able to award over $75,000 in aid to participants at our events. We experience great joy and celebration at the opportunity to continue to do so.
The organizers of the New York Intensive are committed to making NVC training as widely available as possible. We will be using contributions greater than the minimum to make this event as inclusive as possible. In the past our scholarships have mostly been in the $200 – $800 range.
Forward completed applications to Shivani Gail Carroll, chair of the Scholarship Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholarships will be awarded based on the following criteria: financial need, potential contribution for spreading NVC and commitment to working with currently underserved populations. Applications will be processed as they are received.
Volunteers: There are many ways that participants can support this event being as inclusive, hospitable, inspiring and meaningful as possible. We welcome your input, assistance and contributions – which also serve to keep expenses down and increase affordability.
