2024 Fellowship Funding

In accord with its value of “Differences,” World forum Foundation supports diversity in participation through its Fellowship Fund. This fund is made possible due to the generous contributions of sponsors and donors.

Fellowship Fund Guidelines

The World Forum Fellowship Fund is used to support attendance of early childhood professionals from communities with limited financial resources. After reading through the guidelines, if you wish to apply for financial support, please click the button below.

Fellowship funds are limited. Every delegate is expected to support their own participation as much as possible. No delegate will be fully funded. Funding is provided only for those individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend. As such, it will not be provided to individuals who are taking side trips before or after the World Forum or who are paying for other family members to accompany them.

Those receiving Fellowship Funds are expected to fully participate in World Forum activities.

Please apply for fellowship by September 1, 2023. Any applications submitted after September 1, 2023 will be put on a waiting list.

World Forum Foundation will notify recipients of fellowship funding on October 20, 2023.

The Fellowship Funding application deadline was September 1, 2023. If you missed the deadline, please submit your Fellowship Funding request below and you will be put on a waitlist. We will contact you if additional funds become available.
