Scholarship program

Ithaca Generator is happy to offer scholarships to interested people who otherwise might not be able to participate in our organization. If a membership scholarship would benefit your goals as a maker, we hope you will get in touch!

Scholarship requirements
Anyone over the age of 18 may apply for a scholarship.

Twice a year – with Dec. 1 and June 1 as deadlines, the membership committee will accept applications for 6 month long basic membership scholarships. We would like to award four scholarships for each session.

Scholarships can be granted after the deadline if all of the scholarships are not filled. These scholarships will still end at the conclusion of the term during which they were awarded. For example, a late applicant receiving a scholarship in March will have their scholarship end in June.

Award criteria
In the event that we receive more applications than we have scholarships available, the membership committee will seek to award scholarships to applicants with specific project/interest goals, applicants who are members of underrepresented communities, applicants with financial need, and applicants who have not previously received a scholarship. Final scholarship award decisions are the discretion of the membership committee.
