Core Training Work Study Scholarship Application

You are here

Thank you for your interest in the Yoga Outreach trainings, in order to make our trainings as accessible as possible we offer a limited number of workstudy scholarships to participants for each training. In exchange for an agreed upon volunteer time commitment to be completed prior to the training date Yoga Outreach will waive a portion of the training fee.

Please note that scholarships are based primarily on financial need and Yoga Outreach is only able to offer a trade for up to half the cost of the training in order to offer as many scholarship spots as possible.

Scholarship Criteria
- Keen interest in working with At-Risk or Marginalised Populations
- Demonstrated financial need
- Applicants with current involvement, whether paid or volunteer, within these populations will be given priority over general interest applicants.
- Submission of a current Resume (to be uploaded with this application)
