How Does it Work?
Each situation is unique, but the typical sponsorship agreement between a school a student attending MNW contains these components:
The candidate receives support in the form of a loan for Montessori training in return for a multi-year commitment to stay with the sponsoring school; usually two to three years.
The loan usually covers tuition and fees, and the candidate pays living expenses during the training period.
In some cases, the school may forgive a portion of the loan with each year of subsequent service rendered by the candidate. In others, the candidate pays back the loan by deducting a pro-rated amount from each paycheck over the term of the contract.
In the event of termination, the candidate is usually required to pay back the balance of the loan with interest calculated from the date of loan disbursement.
