Through the generosity of our community, LJIST offers a limited number of partial scholarships for individual registrations for our Virtual Workshops and In-Person Transformational Programs.
To expand access and ensure commitment, all scholarships are partial scholarships. We believe it is important that each person pay what they are able or get support from others to help them pay something to participate in our programs.
We offer scholarships for our Virtual Workshops (including our Getting Listened To session) and In-Person Transformational Programs. We are not able to provide scholarships for licenses to view our On-Demand Webinars nor for our Social Justice Coaching Programs.
Participants who have access to Professional Development funds through their organization or are pursuing Continuing Education Credits are not eligible for our scholarship program.
Please read on to find out whether you are eligible. The more criteria that apply to you, the greater your chances of being gifted a scholarship. If you are granted a scholarship, you won’t be eligible to receive another one for at least a year. Also, we will prioritize people who have never received a scholarship.
Scholarship awards are allocated based on four criteria: 1. Country of Residence/Origin; 2. Racial and Ethnic Heritage; 3. Age, and; 4. Student Status. Following UN categorization, Countries of Residence/Origin are organized into four groups. People who were born/live in Group 4 countries will be given priority. Groups 3 and 2 will also be considered if there is no one from Group 4 who has requested funds and funds are available. People from Group 1 will be considered based on their answers to criteria 2-4.
- Country of residence/origin:
- Group 1: Includes Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Read More
- Group 2: Includes Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Read More
- Group 3: Includes Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brazil, Read More
- Group 4: Includes Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Read More
- Racial and Ethnic Heritage:
- Black, Indigenous, People of Color will be given priority for scholarships. We aim to ensure access to communities for whom barriers (current, historical, and intergenerational) have limited or denied access to racial healing spaces.
- Young people, persons 21 years and younger, will have priority.
- Whether enrolled full-time or part-time, students are eligible for scholarships.
There is no way of getting this ‘right.” We are also aware that our scholarships won’t cover the amount of need. Over the coming months and years, we at LJIST have plans to expand our Scholarship Fund and thus our Scholarship Awards. Bear with us, as we learn how best to allocate scholarships to those who are in need and, at the same time, will hopefully have an impact within their communities.
One additional way we make our work accessible for all is our 90-minute dãna (gift) offerings on the 4th Wednesday of each month. View the upcoming schedule, themes, register on our events calendar.
