We highly recommend that you get travel and seminar cancellation insurance, to be sure that you incur no unnecessary costs should your participation not be possible.

8. Scholarships for course fee
Other music e.V. strives to award two full scholarships for each workshop. These scholarships are intended to make it possible for people to participate who would otherwise be unable to do so for financial reasons. Scholarships cover the complete cost of the workshop tuition. Scholarships are given exclusively for the time period of the workshop in which the recipient is registered. Receiving a scholarship for one workshop does not entitle that participant to scholarships for any additional workshops. Anyone is eligible to apply for a scholarship. Since the scholarship is intended for participants with financial need, the other music e.V. requires documentary evidence of the financial situation of the applicant. In addition, please attach a short description of why you wish to attend Yiddish Summer and how a scholarship will help you. A short explanation of why you want a scholarship is also required. Scholarships are awarded according to the budget of the other music e.V., the financial situation of the applicant, and the order the application is received.
The application must be received in the other music e.V. office no later than June 24, 2015. A submitted scholarship application entails no legal claim to a scholarship award. The board of the other music e.V. makes all decisions concerning scholarships. Applicants will be notified by July 1, 2015. All questions concerning scholarship awards can be sent to

9. Documentation

Multimedia documentation is made of all workshops. With your registration, you grant other music e.V. permission to use such documentation for archival and promotional purposes.
