Can I apply if I do not work in the areas of gender equality, immigration rights, human trafficking, child abuse, sexual violence and access to education?

Do you have scholarships or financial assistance available?

Yes, we have scholarships available for those you cannot afford the $7500MXN tuition and/or transportation to Malinalco. We work hard to ensure that every admitted Fellow can attend and that money is not a barrier to join the program. Do not let finances prevent you from applying!

Can I apply with someone else from my organization or venture?
