Organizers are pleased to announce a fellowship opportunity to attend the SCAA Symposium April 23-24, 2014, in Seattle, WA. The Symposium Fellowship program is designed to give access to Symposium to those who might not normally be able to attend for financial or other reasons.
The ideal Symposium Fellow is a future or current leader in Specialty coffee, driving the future of coffee.
They might be a barista who has pushed their coffeeshop forward, a producer co-op leader who has organized their community around coffee quality, a young entrepreneur who is building a company around a great idea, or a person working for an NGO who is making a special difference.
The fellowship is designed for people who lack the financial resources to attend Symposium on their own, but who belong in the environment of leadership, deeper understanding, and progress that Symposium provides.
Fill out and submit the questionnaire by Thursday, February 13, 2014. You will be notified of your fellowship status by Friday, March 3, 2014.
SCAA is offering a select number of fellowships covering the registration fee for the event.
The recipients of the fellowship will be responsible for covering their own transportation and lodging expenses.
Fellowships will be awarded as available. English is not required, but a working command of English will greatly enhance the experience.
The Fellowship includes access to the SCAA Exposition, taking place April 24-27, 2014.
