Terra Madre scholarships 2018
*NB: this is an amended post with a new deadline of April 8th instead of March 31st for delegate scholarships*
Terra Madre will be held in Turin, Italy from September 20-24. To learn more about the event, head here.
There are two options to attend:
Option #1: Apply for a delegate scholarship. This includes attendance to the event, accommodations, meals and ground transportation. This does NOT include airfare. New deadline is April 8, 2018. This option is for those who are applying for a scholarship in order to fund their housing, meals and ground transportation.
Option #2: Register as a USA delegate. This option is for those who wish to attend as a delegate, but do not need financial support for housing, meals, or ground transportation.
In addition to the above, Slow Food PDX will be offering scholarships, as well:
Slow Food Portland scholarships
Slow Food Portland will be awarding four $1300 scholarships to cover delegate airfare.
Deadline is April 20th. Scholarships will be announced on May 1, 2018. Please note, if someone does not receive a USA delegate scholarship, he/she can still apply for an airfare scholarship, but will be responsible for all accommodations in Italy and must register as a delegate.
Summary for those wishing to receive scholarships
DEADLINE IS April 8, 2018
DEADLINE IS APRIL 20, 2018
ps: yes, this can be confusing. It boils down to this:
Fully funded delegate: apply to be a USA delegate + apply to Slow Food PDX airfare scholarship
Partially funded delegate: apply to be a USA delegate OR apply to Slow Food PDX airfare scholarship
Non-funded delegate: register as a delegate and pay own airfare, housing, etc
