Eligibility Questions

These questions help us determine if you are eligible to participate in Humanity in Perspective. If one of your answers makes you ineligible to proceed, you will be prompted to exit the form. If you have questions about why you are ineligible, or to request an exception, please contact Rozzell Medina.

 

HIP is for adults living on low incomes (less than two times the federal poverty guideline for annual household income, which is $25,760 for a single adult or $53,000 for a family of four) and for people who face systemic barriers to continuing their education.

 

Requesting financial information helps us ensure that those invited to participate in HIP could not otherwise afford such an opportunity.
