A $50 non-refundable application fee is required of all applicants. 

This fee helps financially support the administration of the crowdfunding process, application review, and licensing fees for the use of the crowdfunding platform.

MTP is committed to ensuring equal access to young innovators and changemakers from a wide array of backgrounds, including those from marginalized communities, or those who are putting their time into new venture at significant personal cost.  If you are unsalaried or have an income which may preclude you from applying to for one of our journeys because you cannot afford the application fee, we reserve the right to waive your fee. This is done on a discretionary basis and is non-negotiable.

If you would like to apply for a waiver, you should be confident your proposal meets our Project Evaluation Criteria, then send us your CV and a cover letter explaining your financial circumstances. Waiver requests should be sent to
