Scholarship Selection Criteria

Scholarships have been created to assure representation and participation of individuals and organizations which are often under-represented: women of color, indigenous populations, cross-cultural communities and women living in poverty.

Applications will be reviewed by a committee of four to assure a balance of geographic regions, intergenerational representation, organizational focus and ethnic/cultural diversity.

To apply:

Submit the following information by e-mail to katheschaaf@cox.net:
~ Name and address
~ Age and ethnicity/cultural background
~ Name of organization and a brief description of its work in the world
~ Identify your role within the organization
~ Why do you feel called to join this collaborative conversation? (very briefly)
