Worldwork 2008 Masthead


The organization recognizes that the giving and allocating of money for scholarships and work/study positions is a Worldwork project that is continually evolving as we all learn and grow in relationship to economics, education and social justice. The scholarship and work- study policy is fluid and develops based on feedback from previous participants. Thanks to everyone who has helped to create it!
In order to make the seminar accessible to as many people as possible from all over the world, between one third to one half of the participants receive some kind of financial assistance. 

More details about the contribution to the scholarship fund

In addition we support participants to also seek external funding to attend the seminar. Worldwork 2008 is registered with the Comenius - Grundtvig – Life Long learning programme. Participants from member countries of European Union read more on possibility for grant application.  
Until now we were not able to locate a similar form of funding for participants outside of the EU. If anyone knows of any such programme please let us know. Thank you.

Individuals who come from countries where the local monetary equivalence is not comparable to Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Western Europe, or Japan are encouraged to apply for scholarships. In addition, individuals coming from countries such as the U.S., Western Europe, or Australia who are part of groups that have been economically disenfranchised are encouraged to apply for tuition scholarships.
Please send a brief statement of your need and the nature of your request. Scholarships will be awarded as long as funds remain.

A limited number of work/study positions will be available for individuals who need financial assistance and who come from countries where there is a relatively fair equivalence to the Euro. For a tuition reduction we ask that work/study participants be willing to help the seminar in a variety of tasks including video-taping, cleaning and arranging the room, registration, office jobs, and helping those with special needs.  We will ask participants to help out before, during, or after the seminar and tuition reductions will coincide with the workload.
Please send a brief description stating your need and also include any special skills such as video work, sound, computer, grant-writing, or secretarial skills.

The deadline to apply for a work/study position is November 1, 2007.
