We are accepting applications on a rolling basis, but the sooner you apply, the better your chances of being selected. Also, the earlier you apply, the greater the likelihood of receiving a partial scholarship, if needed. We are taking applications until December 30, 2017, though we encourage you to apply by December 15, 2017. If you are receiving this application after that date, please check with us to make sure space is still available before you apply. We look forward to hearing from you!


Important Note: Due to the small and personal nature of the event, this questionnaire is longer and more in-depth than most, because we want to get to know you better. Please share as much as you feel comfortable sharing. There is no min/max length for responses and no pressure. We only ask you to share what you feel is 'enough'. We will follow up with more questions or a phone call if we need more information.


Also, please note that all of your answers, including your name and basic info, will be kept in full confidentiality.* Only the leadership team will have access to your application. The more the team learns about you, the more informed their decision about selection can be.


* Please note that if you are accepted, your name and bio will be shared with the other participants of your Jam just prior to the event. Following the Jam, we will put this information up on our website so that you can participate in the alumni community, unless you request otherwise. More info on this is below.

How Did You Hear About the Jam? (required)


The people in the room are the focus of the Jam, and sharing our stories, experiences, ideas, etc., through different formats, is how we engage and learn together. The following series of questions is meant to be a taste of this principle. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar or eloquent articulation. We just want to get a sense of who you feel you are.


1. How do you identify? (gender identity, race/ethnic background, sexual orientation, class, anything else that is part of what makes you who you are.) We ask because we value diversity, the opportunity to create safe space, and want to know how to best meet participant needs.(required)


2. What are your questions right now? What’s alive for you? What are your current places of challenge, growth, and excitement? (required)


3. What’s your hope or vision for Pakistan? What’s your work in the world and how do you see it related or not to that vision? (required)


4. What’s the support that you need at this time in your life’s work? How might the Jam be able to help with that? What can you offer others at the Jam to support their journey? (required)


5. Why do you want to come to the Jam? (required)


6. Please share with us any concerns, doubts, fears or reservations you would have about attending the Jam: (required)


7. Anything else you want to share about yourself?


8. Please give us a mini-bio (a paragraph version of your story) written in the third person (for example, using "he" or “she” instead of “I”). No need to be humble! Include contributions you’ve made, any awards or accomplishments, organizations you’ve been involved with, etc. This will not be publicized in any way without your consent. By submitting it here, you are agreeing that if you are selected for the Jam, it will be shared with the other selected participants, just prior to the Jam, as a pre-introduction. (required)


Costs of Attending


Tuition for the Jam has been set at Rs. 8000, of which Rs. 6000 covers food and lodging at the site outside of Karachi city and Rs. 2000 covers a few program expenses, including organizing efforts, supplies and materials. A number of partial scholarships are available upon request, on an as-needed basis, as are work trades. In fact, we work with each participant to set up the specific combination of scholarship, work trade and monetary payment that works for them. Our hope is that money will not be a barrier to anyone’s participation.


Additional donations above the event price are welcome and help us to provide scholarships to enable the diversity upon which this event thrives.


1. How much might you or your organization be able to contribute to the Jam tuition of Rs. 8000? (This includes what you might be able to fundraise from family, friends, and/or your community. The Jam team is available to assist you in fundraising efforts.) (required)


We invite work trades as well. Are there other non-monetary ways that you might be in reciprocity with the Jam (any particular skills, other in-kind contributions, etc.)? (required)


Travel expenses are the responsibility of the participant (the JAM will be held outside Karachi), though we do help to arrange vans from the Daewoo Station (Superhighway) and Airport.


If you are selected, we will be following up with you to ask you about diet, housing, travel plans, etc. We want to be sure to meet your needs at the Jam.


Thanks so much for taking the time to fill out this long application! We’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
