Costs of Program
HAPA believes that no leader should be prevented in participating in Kuleana Academy because of their economic situation, so we have worked hard to fundraise the money to cover participants' travel and program costs. However, once accepted into the Academy, each Participant is expected to fundraise a $1,000 contribution to the program. $200 of the $1,000 will be due upfront by June 20, 2019 if accepted to the program. The $200 can be from personal funds or fundraised. Limited Scholarships are available for the initial $200. The remaining $800 must be fundraised by October 1, 2019 and cannot be a personal contribution. However, they can be made up of contributions raised from multiple persons (i.e. $40 contributions raised from 20 people; totaling $800). This component is included as a “real life” exercise as part of the fundraising training. No more than $400 can be "online crowd-funded."
If accepted to the HAPA Kuleana Academy, I pledge my commitment to fundraising a total of $1,000 in contributions towards my participation in the Academy by October 1, 2019. I understand that if I do not meet this requirement I will not be able to complete the program.
If I am accepted into the Academy, $200 will be due by June 20, 2019. The $200 can be from personal funds or fundraised. (Limited Scholarships are available for the initial $200.)
I am interested in applying for a scholarship for the initial $200.
