Scholarship Pledges Received for All Living Ecology Interns
Great News for Prospective Interns at Living Ecology
One donor has offered to pay $1,000 of the cost for each 2016 Permaculture Internship for International Aid through Living Ecology. This is great news for the organization, current and prospective interns, and the communities served in India. This means that instead of paying $4,550 for a four month internship (extending from January through July) and certification, participants will only pay $3,550 for the program.
The cost covers aspects of the program such as food, accommodations, transportation, language translation, mentorship, Permaculture in International Aid Certification supplies, and follow-up report for the project in the dryland farms in India. Airfare to India is the intern’s responsibility. Crowd funding is one great way to raise funds for participation. These changes, along with details of the new three month internship option, are now reflected in the internship description for website visitors.
This donation also brings the organization closer to the goal to be able to provide Ethnic Diversification Scholarships for Native American, African American, and Indian participants. Hopefully, by January, enough funds to pay full tuition for these three groups will be available.
Living Ecology is still seeking donors and participants for next year’s internship, beginning January, 2016. Apply on the website today or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Please share this info with anyone you know who might be interested in the program.
