How do I apply?
Please apply online at http://beahrselp.berkeley.edu/training/application2018/
Complete applications include ALL of the following: submitted and signed Application answering ALL questions and forms, resume or curriculum vitae, and a signed reference letter.
Are scholarship opportunities or financial support available?
You may apply for a partial scholarship through the same application as you would for the course. The Beahrs ELP is only able to offer partial scholarships that cover only a portion of the total cost of the program. Generally, our partial scholarships range between $1000 and $3000, and are offered based on a combination of merit and need, and availability of funds. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a scholarship to all participants or any specific amount. However, we do work very hard with each accepted applicant to find the necessary funds.
In regards to financial support, we strongly recommend that all applicants to the program seek funding from both their organizations and outside sources before and alongside your application to the ELP, as funding can be a challenge for applicants. If you are selected as a candidate for the course, we will also try to work with you to apply for outside funding sources.
Deadline: 13th January, 2018
