I don’t have financial resources to afford the course.  Can I still participate? Do you have scholarships?

We have limited number of scholarships available. The scholarship can cover course fees, accommodation, food expenses and travel to the course location. There are also possibilities for additional scholarships from our donors and partners. If you need a scholarship to participate in the course please indicate so in the application form or contact our manager. Please note, that scholarship does not cover the individual contribution in the form of 30% of monthly income.

Could you explain about the 30% contribution? What is it for? Does everyone has to pay it?

Yes, all applicants, participating in the course are required to contribute to the costs of the course with 30% of monthly income, including those participante, who are  fully sponsored by their organisation or through FLOW scholarship or donor support. In very rare cases exceptions can be made.   

Monthly income is assessed as the average throughout the last year. This input is necessary for methodological reasons -  the work we do in Flow is very deep and requires significant motivation. In our experience the absence of 30% personal input severely affects the quality of work and impact from the course.
