Apply to Host a Summit in 2016!

Want to host an IDDS in the coming year?  Long or short, themed or general, we have all the dates and details on how to apply to host a summit ready for you!  The application will be a two round process.

For Round 1, you and your team will need to submit an Indication of Interest by February 13, 2015 at 5pm EST (any incomplete or late entries will be disqualified).

After careful review by a tender committee, qualified teams will move on to Round 2 and asked to submit a full proposal package and attend a group interview via Skype in March. We plan to notify and announce all summit organizing teams IDIN will support in 2016 by April 10, 2015.

Participant Selection Process

For those who are wringing their hands and wondering about the participant selection process, here is a bit of info how it works and how many applications we’ve recieved this year.

For IDDS Zero Waste applicants – we are in Round 3 as we’re finishing selecting the Colombian participants by next week and will then start looking at the financial assistance forms by next weekend for all accepted participants.

For IDDS D’Kar and IDDS Aarogyam applicants – we are starting Round 2 this weekend.

All applicants will know their full status (acceptance, waitlist, non-acceptance) as well as the amount of financial assistance available for them by mid Feb.

It’s been exciting to see how many incredible people there are across the globe. I wish we could take everyone. The decisions will be tough for sure! Best wishes to all!
