BKI Scholarship Fund

Every year we get many requests for assistance to attend the BKI. In 2019 we were able to subsidize over 50 participants and helpers, thanks to the generous donations from other participants and friends.  If you are able, please consider making a donation to our Scholarship Fund. This fund will be used to help cover the expenses of our larger resource team this year. 

Please indicate the amount (in $US) on your registration (donations are tax-deductible in the USA) or make a donation to BCM and note that it is for the 2020 Bartimaeus Kinsler Institute.


If you require assistance to attend the BKI we normally offer work-trade partial scholarships for registration only: we will put you to work during the Institute helping with logistics, but you will be able to attend the full program. You will be required to pay for your own transport to the Institute and stay on-site at Forest Home (Standard Cabin or Budget Tent accommodation).

Our scholarship offerings are limited by what we receive in donations and normally given out on a first come basis (or we create a wait list until donations arrive).
