GeekRetreat scholarships available!

We’re gearing up for the next GeekRetreat from 15-17 January in Stanford, Western Cape. I can’t wait! It’s going to be awesome 🙂 And, best thing is that we have 11/12 scholarships for people from non-profits/social entrepreneurship ventures related to education and the Internet! More below:

If you’re working on or have an idea for an education project that uses the Internet to improve quality/access/diversity of education in South Africa, please fill out the form here by 7 December at the latest. If selected, you’ll join 50 social entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, tech journalists, and PR people making the Internet better for South Africa one byte at a time.

Scholarships are sponsored by Old Mutual and Sentient Communications, and will go to candidates who will get the most out of connecting with some of South Africa’s most important digital entrepreneurs.

The retreat will be held from 15-17 January 2010 in the beautiful village of Stanford in the Western Cape. Scholarships will cover participant fees + airfare (if necessary).
