Their partnerships with leading service providers also provides cohort members with over $1m worth of discounts which means that there are virtually no large company outgoings in the first six months.
They aim to make EF accessible regardless of your financial situation.They may also be able to offer a scholarship which provides additional financial aid.
OTHER KEY DATES
There are two possible start dates for the programmes — March and September. The next cohort is EF8 and kicks off late-March 2017, followed by EF9 which starts in mid-September 2017.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
