I have the same experience. I was suprised becauser the process seems very easy. And they did not mentioned about the deadline or reference or checking about participants's organisations.See positive reviews
I was offered a training scholarship to Denver, Colorado by an organization called Humanias International. However, I was suspicious about this organization and I started a research process with lots of people involved. And here are some of the facts I found out from my reasearch team: 1) Their website was created using file.html method which is manual ; once they wanna change the information, they have to delete the whole previous info on the website and rewrite the content. And this is not often the case of a professional organization (or something like that according to my sibbling who is an IT programmer). And there website was developed in Sept 2014 which was at least a few years after their program started running (from 2011 or so) 2) They don't have a specific name (of a partner, a location, etc) except for two staff (one is James D. Corrales and the other is Evelyn W. Duncan 3) Their photos are mostly stock images (according to one of my American friend) 4) Most importantly: - Their hotline number 1-800-465-1440 is like a scam ( My American friend in Portland called and she said "It rang and then an electronic voice said maybe i could win a caribbean cruise and wanted me to stay on the phone to answer some survey questions." - And my American friend also found this: http://www.uia.org/content/11258 So, in conclusion, if you are offered a scholarship by Humanias International and told to pay registration fee (390 -700USD) please be careful. Don't give them your details. Good luck A development practitioner from a Developing country! Hazel ChongSee critical reviews
