Scholarships

The Hollyhock Scholarship Fund exists to provide support to individuals who require assistance to participate in a Hollyhock program. All applicants must first register for Social Change Institute and secure their spot with a deposit. All applications are reviewed and considered. Priority is given to those who demonstrate financial need, diversity, have not received a Hollyhock scholarship within the past two years, and articulate how they will bring what they learn in their Hollyhock educational program back to their homes, workplaces and communities.

How does a Hollyhock Scholarship apply to Social Venture Institute?

Once approved, a Hollyhock scholarship is applied to the cost of your conference tuition. Scholarship recipients are responsible for paying the balance of tuition, as well as the full cost of travel, accommodation and meals, day-use fees (for offsite guests), and taxes/ fees associated with attending Social Venture Institute.

What Does Hollyhock Ask of Scholarship Recipients?

We may ask for your help to spread the word about SVI and post-program, we’ll invite you to share a quotation or testimonial about your time at Hollyhock.

Registration & Deposits for Scholarship Applicants

When you register, please indicate that you intend to apply for a scholarship. Your registration deposit is refundable, less a $50 processing fee, if you cancel up to 7 days prior to your arrival. Cancellation 7 days or less before your arrival date results in full deposit forfeit. We recommend that you register and apply for a scholarship early. Early submission helps your chance of receiving support.

When Will You Hear From Us?

Our Scholarship Committee meets regularly and you can expect to hear back from us within a week of submitting your application. An automatic email confirmation is sent out for every application received, however, spam filters and other technical reasons may result in you not receiving the email. If you do not receive the auto receipt, please contact scholarships@hollyhock.ca.
