HOW MUCH | $800-$1400

A Note on Funding Your Experience

At this time, Cucuyo does not offer scholarships. However, many past participants have had success in raising the funds needed to participate. Often schools, churches and relatives are more than willing to contribute to an experience as unique as that which Cucuyo offers. Crowd-funding platforms such as Indie Go-Go are making these efforts even more convenient. Please contact us if you'd like additional fundraising ideas and information.
