The Beanstalk Project Bursary Fund Students need your help!
The Beanstalk Project "Unconferences" are exactly the opportunity that students need: a creative, stimulating, supportive environment where they can develop their leadership skills, connect with mentors, and feel ownership over their own accomplishments. See what participants are saying!
For too many students, the cost is prohibitive.
The Beanstalk Project and its founder, Joel Hilchey, are committed to ensuring cost is not a limiting factor for any committed student who wishes to attend a conference event.

How are the donations used?
The donations are used to provide bursaries for students who cannot afford to attend a conference.
Who is eligible for bursaries?
"There's a big difference between a student who says, 'I can pay zero dollars' and a student who says, 'I will save $1 per week for the next 5 weeks, so I can pay $5.' The Beanstalk Project Unconference is for students who want to develop their skills, and while the bursary application is simple, we ensure that bursaries are awarded to those students who demonstrate a commitment to their own development." - Joel Hilchey
While we miss being able to run live, in-person workshops (and, let’s face it, have fun with our friends on stage), our mission is to support teachers and students in better education. We’re committed to doing so in a way that is safe and effective during these times. We’re excited about our new online options for students and will continue to develop and offer these options for as long as necessary.
