beVisioneers is committed to ensuring an accessible and financially inclusive fellowship experience. Active engagement in the fellowship program requires reliable and consistent access to a computer and the internet, as well as sufficient time for learning and project development. For this reason, beVisioneers offers three types of financial support to help fellows with specific needs overcome logistical and/or financial barriers that may prevent their full participation. All types are available only for the initial, 12-month intensive learning program, and every candidate invited for a fellowship interview is welcome to apply.
What kind of financial support do we provide?
Active engagement in the fellowship program requires reliable and consistent access to a computer and internet, as well as sufficient time for learning and project development. For this reason, beVisioneers offers three options for financial support (see below) for fellows with specific needs to overcome logistical and/or financial barriers that may prevent their full participation
Option I: Monthly income replacement
For fellows whose current income would be compromised by the fellowship’s required time commitment, beVisioneers offers a basic monthly income to help replace lost earnings.
Option II: Technology and infrastructure
For fellows lacking an adequate technology set-up, beVisoneers offers one-time funds to purchase a laptop designated for fellowship purposes.
Option III: Financial support for Internet access (monthly payment)
For fellows lacking adequate Internet access at their homes to fully and reliably participate in the fellowship, beVisioneers offers a basic monthly income to cover Internet access fees.
If you are invited to an interview, you will have the opportunity to apply for financial support at that stage of your application process. Further documents will be required for you to upload if you decide to do so.
Who can apply for which option?
If you are invited to an interview for the fellowship, you can apply for financial support. Please check our Q&A article to see who is eligible for financial support.
You can apply to each of the three financial support options. You may also apply to all three.
