Funding / Cost
No Cost! Free room and food stipend. Furnishings included. And if your project requires funding, it may be possible to raise the money.
20+ hours/week of work related to the Go community is required. You should be willing to give some credit for your the project you created while at the BadukHouse to BadukClub (adding links or logos, etc).
You should detail your project in your application projects will be selected based on the following criteria:
Will the project continue after leaving the program?
How much have you thought through the project?
Why do you believe that you'll be able to bring your idea to life?
longevity of effect after you graduate
the amount of detail you've put into planning
a background or proof of capabilities
Examples of projects may include but is not limited to:
Organizing/hosting in-person and/or online meetups
Planning in-person and/or online ladders and tournaments
Creating new and exciting Go related products for sale.
Create Go news, a podcast, videos, etc.
Helping with websites/organizations related to Go (ei. BadukClub, Baduk News, GoMagic, AGA, EGF, CGA, etc)
Helping to maintain, fix, or improve the Baduk House.
Project proposals will be reviewed by the Program Director and you will receive an acceptance letter if your project is approved.
Participants will have t0 set goals and timelines for when things will be completed and if they miss deadlines may be asked to leave early (although 4 alumni have chosen to move to the city after the program and we can help you find long-term housing). This won't be super strict, but I can't have `lazy freeloaders` bringing everyone down.
