Third Wave Foundation Offers United States Social Forum Scholarships

Recently people on the NCDD members discussion list have mentioned the possibility of going to the US Social Forum this June (visit www.ussf2007.org for details). If you are in need of a scholarship for travel consider applying for one from the Third Wave Foundation (www.thirdwavefoundation.org). The Third Wave Foundation’s United States Social Forum Fund provides full scholarships (registration, travel, lodging, and food) for young women and transgender activists between the ages of 15 and 30 to attend the United States Social Forum, June 27-July 1, 2007, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The foundation is accepting applications from individuals that are currently working for positive social change in their communities. The foundation seeks to support young women and transgender youth who are members, staff, board, or volunteers of youth-led and intergenerational organizations. Third Wave Foundation prioritizes young people from organizations that are multi-issue and multi-strategy. In particular, the foundation places a priority on individuals from the following communities: low-income; people of color; differently abled (mental, physical, or emotional); immigrant; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender; and/or those in rural areas. The foundation also encourages applications from people impacted by the sex trade or sex workers, young parents, and formerly incarcerated. The deadline for applications is May 10, 2007. Visit the Third Wave Foundation Web site for further information and the application form.
