Diversity Scholarship Fund

Last fall, a bunch of motivated Web of Change participants conceived an idea to create and donate to a scholarship fund for this year’s Web of Change, a fund that would provide travel/tuition scholarships to those who could bring unique geographic, ethnic or cultural perspectives to WOC 2006. Springing from their profound gratitude for the experience and a desire to give something back, the Diversity Scholarship Fund, administered through the Hollyhock Leadership Institute, now holds $1500 CND!

The WOC organizing team will use these funds specifically to award scholarships. By alleviating some economic barriers associated with tuition and travel costs for global leaders and innovators that may not otherwise have been able to attend, the hope is to encourage and expand the range of viewpoints and insight contributing to the great level of discourse that makes Web of Change so special.

"This conference is small enough to really learn from the other attendees, and is very focussed on online social change, and what it takes to make it happen. It's very well facilitated and structured, with constant learning opportunities – and that's why I've returned year after year."
