Professional Scholarships

Supporting low income and under-supported populations

Application Now Closed.
We are currently fundraising to be able to offer additional scholarships. Get involved and together we can do more!

We are able to offer 5 scholarships each for $800 for participation in the 2023 Certificate Program. Application deadline is Wednesday, November 23rd.

Our scholarships are highly competitive. On average, we are only able to provide scholarships to less than 15% of all applicants. We wish we could do more and we fundraise year-round to support as many individuals as we can.

We also recognize that these partial scholarships leave a balance of up to $599 for the recipient and that can create a barrier to participation. We encourage all participants to investigate other ways to fund the program or remaining tuition costs. It is possible. It just takes work and commitment. Many past graduates have successfully raised funds directly through employers, local non-profits, friends and family. Please review this option here.

Donations required!

We rely on the financial support of foundations and grants to offset the costs of the program and to provide these scholarships. Without this generous support, we would not be able to operate and provide this invaluable Oncology Yoga training. We ask for our community to contribute as much as possible.  Please consider donating or supporting via a crowd-fundraising campaign. 

A guaranteed way to join!

We are only able to support about 15% of those that apply with a scholarship. We encourage participants to explore other ways to fund this advanced training.
