La Scuola Open Source (SOS), an Educational Institute, Centre for Research and Consultancy — in Art and Technology — for Industry, Trade and Handicraft (digital or not) has set up a fund to finance the assignment of scholarships through donations made by individuals, institutions or companies.
In a context in which, as stated in the SVIMEZ report, the data on youth unemployment and neets arouse great concerns, this operation aims to value long networks through digital tools:
☆ everyone can contribute to the fund
☆ everyone can apply
The scholarship can be requested by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating name, surname, course / workshop, motivation and attaching CV (or portfolio).
There are 3 criteria for the assignment (in order of priority):
☛ budget availability at the time of request;
☛ reaching of the minimum number of participants enrolled to the course (useful to allow its activation);
☛ motivation stated by the applicant
Every donation, from the smallest to the most generous, is essential to reach the budget useful to support anyone who wants to develop skills useful for themselves and for others.
The idea is that it doesn't matter where you come from or what you own, it only counts where you go and what you can and want to do to contribute.
As we receive donations, we'll provide scholarships giving priority to requests for courses that have a sufficient number of participants to be activated, basing on the motivations provided.
For transparency, the donations received will all be listed on our website together with the budget collceted, how much of it has been already allocated and the number of scolarships distributed.
