Dear Creative Commons Global Network Colleagues:
Hello! I hope you are healthy and well, amidst our global community’s
My name is Jennryn Wetzler. I am the Assistant Director of Open Education
at CC and manage the CC Certificate program
<https://certificates.creativecommons.org/>. In case you did not receive
the news (there have been more pressing news items lately), I am pleased to
announce we have a second round of CC Certificate scholarships for people
interested in our open licensing training. These scholarships are open to
all CC Network members. Scholarships can be applied to the 2020 online
courses, starting on 1 June or 14 September (see calendar
Scholarships are only for CC Network Members
Here is the nomination form <https://forms.gle/UBC63vcTUrdjZ7m18> for
scholarships (network members can self nominate).
Deadline for scholarship applications: 15 April, 2020.
When selecting scholarship recipients, CC will seek to maximize the
number of countries represented (i.e., we will likely select one
scholarship recipient per country).
If there is already a submission from your country, your submission will
not be accepted at this time, but we may contact you for 2021
Countries with GNC-nominated scholarship recipients for 2020 include:
Bangladesh, Ghana, Nepal, Netherlands, Rwanda, South Africa, Taiwan,
Uruguay and Venezuela.
We have only 17 remaining scholarships we can offer in 2020. If we
receive all nominations before 15 April, we will close the nomination form
Learn more about our first scholarship recipients in 2019 here
What we seek in scholarship recipients:
Active members of the Creative Commons Global Network.
Interest in taking the Certificate course and time to successfully
complete it. The course is rigorous and requires approximately 6-10 hours
Members who will use the knowledge gained in the Certificate to fuel
their own community efforts and “pay it forward.” Paying it forward
includes sharing knowledge acquired in the course with their community.
Ideally members will also be interested in training others either
informally or as an official, paid CC Certificate Facilitator. To become CC
Certificate Facilitators, members will need to first graduate from the CC
Certificate course, and then take and pass the CC Certificate Facilitator
Members who remain in communication for future correspondence via email,
surveys and possible webinars following the Certificate course.
Members with strong English language skills.
