PART SCHOLARSHIP
W/ WORKEXCHANGE

If we run out of allocated scholarships there are a couple of other ways to receive the program. Both alternatives will supply you with employment ready skills in Renewable Energy. We make sure of that.

1. Work Exchange: You work on site at the festival and Solar Living Institute in exchange. It's equal to 9 dollars an hour applied towards your classes and attending the festivals. You are given a food stipend of $25 a week, Camping equipment, free camping on site and transportation. It's all arranged for you and a Black Crow Volunteer will be there on site to help you through it.

2. Part Scholarship: A full Scholarship is worth about $2000. That's what is supplied by our donations. If no full scholarships are available, partial might be. You pay anywhere from $300 to half. This is another option if you don't want to do work exchange.
