You step away from your known life for 6 amazingly challenging and inspiring months! Because you feel that you want to take life into your own hands and give yourself an opportunity to grow on your own terms, shine together with peers and share your knowledge and talents with the world. And to, after those 6 months, fully step into your life again with a backpack of tools, strong energy and the ability to change your life and inspire around you.


Here’s what you need to know to apply for our 6 month program in Amsterdam: Application Deadline for Tribe 14 is July 18th 2016 and the program will start on September 5th 2016. If you want to join this tribe of amazing people then here are the 4 steps.

Step 1 – Getting in touch
After requesting our online application form you will automatically receive an email with our application form. After you receive your application form, you’ll have 7 days to finish it.
We will get in touch with you to inform if you have any questions or if you would like to meet with us, either online or offline.

Step 2 – Your application and the interviews
After we’ve received your finished application form, we will schedule 2 interviews (online or offline) with you to meet staff and current students.

The interviews are part of the application process. It is meant to really meet each other. It allows us to ask you questions about your application form and your motivation to join the program. And it allows you to ask us all your questions you might have. It will help us to find out whether the Knowmads program is for you.

Just like in the application form, there are no right or wrong answers or ways to prepare for this interview. We would like to meet you in an open and honest way.

Step 3 – Your and our decision. And the boring but necessary practicalities
If all goes well, we will send you an official invitation for joining Tribe 14 after the 2 interviews. We will send you our feedback and the educational agreement for Tribe 14. Within 1 week, we expect (1) your answer whether or not you want to join, (2) your signed educational agreement, and (3) payment of first instalment (the second instalment to be paid before the start of the program).

Please note: We strive to make sure there is 1 month between requesting the application form and signing the educational agreement. This helps both you and us to get ready for the start of Tribe 14.

Please note 2: We have space for 20 tribe members. Once we have accepted 20 people, the application for Tribe 14 closes. After that, applications for Tribe 15 starting in March 2017 will open.
