The UNRuly retreat scholarship application
Curvy, Curly, Conscious is honored to offer (2) scholarships covering the full retreat fee for two women to attend to The UNRULY Retreat taking place July 31st - August 5th, 2019 in Cancun, Mexico.
Scholarship recipients must meet the following criteria :
1. Have a real need for the scholarship. This opportunity is for our sisters who really could not attend The UNRULY Retreat without the assistance of this scholarship prize. This is an honor system and geared towards women who really could not afford to attend the retreat...not just those who could possibly attend but need to pull some financial strings in order to make it possible.
2. Be extremely comfortable rooming with someone you don’t know. Scholarship recipients will be sharing one double occupancy room together so it's necessary that you're comfortable sharing space with a stranger for an extended amount of time (y'all might become bffs tho).
3. Must be able to cover your airfare to and from Cancun, Mexico. This scholarship prize only covers the retreat fee (an $1800 value), you are responsible for purchasing your airfare to the retreat.
4. Be absolutely certain you can attend the retreat from July 31st - Aug 5th. Double and triple check your calendar, sis. Make sure these dates are truly doable based on your other life commitments.
We decided to take a different approach in deciding how the (2) scholarship recipients would be determined. In reading the selection process below, you will see that there are three different rounds to the selection process. Please read carefully and make sure you are open and available to participate in all phases.
How the selection process will work:
Phase 1: Initial scholarship applications are accepted from Wednesday, February 27th - Friday, March 1st. Scholarship applications will be evaluated and the top 10 finalists will be selected from the submitted applications and notified on Monday, March 11th.
Phase 2: The top 10 finalists will then move on to the next phase of the selection process which will involve a public voting aspect with the top 5 moving on to the next phase.
Phase 3: In this final phase, the top 5 will meet virtually with Shelah on Wednesday, March 27th and cast their vote/discuss who the (2) scholarship recipients will be. Yes, the top 5 will decide who amongst them will be receiving the scholarships.
If all of the above sounds good to you, please take a moment to submit your scholarship application below.
As detailed above, applications close on Friday, March 1st and those making it to the next round will be notified on Monday, March 11th.
