Do you or the partner organization have the funding to purchase the project kit? *
We are always looking for project sponsorship partnerships with brands, and therefore if funding for you or the organization is not an option, please still complete the application so your project is on file with us should scholarship opportunities arise.


Thank you for your time and thoughtfulness! We recognize that this was a big deal to map out the project's business plan and coordinate details with the partner organization, and we have no doubt you are an incredible human that desires to do good and important work around the world. 

Our team will be in touch within two weeks of the submission date. Applicants that move forward to the second round will be invited to join in a skype interview session.
