ILALI is built on our commitment to creating the conditions, space, and community where any adult can develop to their highest potential despite the various circumstances that often keep most people from investing the time and resources to do so. We also know the time commitment involved with participating in Wayfinders means significant time away from your life, work, and ability to cover the costs of living. 


To meet candidates’ needs and to fulfill our own vision, ILALI will cover the full room, board, and tuition costs of participation for every member of the Wayfinders pilot cohort. This commitment by ILALI includes:

  • Single room accommodation at the Whidbey Institute from January 6 - April 23, 2023

  • Organic meals prepared with fresh ingredients throughout the program 

  • Full program tuition costs for facilitation, instruction, key materials

  • Transportation costs for designated group activities during the program

  • A need-based cost of living stipend to offset loss of income during program

  • Assistance in obtaining course credit for completion of Wayfinders


The following are the responsibility of applicants, which ILALI can assist with in case of financial need:

  • $35 application fee

  • Maintain active health insurance coverage during the program term

  • Transportation to/from the Whidbey Institute at the beginning of the program


In order to submit your application successfully, we require a non-refundable Application Fee of $35. This fee can be waived if you are being sponsored by a person or organization in your community that ILALI has an affiliation with. If this fee is still a barrier to submitting your application successfully, please contact us at info@ilali.global to discuss other options.

Cost of Living Stipend
ILALI may be able to provide some applicants a cost of living stipend to offset some of your bills by participating in Wayfinders.

Cost of living stipends are awarded based on need. Please use this space to describe any unusual expenses, special circumstances, or other life events that affect your financial situation. Applications are evaluated on the information supplied, so please answer this question as completely as possible.
