YogaCare is granting between 4-6 scholarships for teacher training programs that will run in the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019. This program supports YogaCare students and partnering organizations who are committed to spreading the benefits of yoga in community settings to promote health and well being. Scholarships are granted to yogis who demonstrate potential to become yoga teachers and also demonstrate financial need.

Eligibility Requirements and Expectations of Scholars:

At least 1 year of consistent yoga practice (at least 40 classes.)
Flexibility to commit to weekend trainings as set by training program.
Full tuition at the training program ranges from $2,500 - $5,000 for a 200 hour teacher training program. While granting the scholarships, we will help raise the funds needed to support these scholarships, and we would ask that any scholarship awardees chosen help with these efforts in any way possible.
Should you be awarded the scholarship, YogaCare asks that you raise $250 or provide $250 worth of volunteer service helping with YogaCare work. We could help you put together some fundraiser ideas if you'd like.
After you complete the 200-hr training program, we would ask you to attend apprenticeship and volunteer opportunities with YogaCare for at least 6 months.
We will also ask you to report monthly to YogaCare on the number of students and classes you teach once you begin teaching.

Applications should be submitted by August 11, 2018 and will be kept confidential. All applicants will be considered and reviewed by a committee directed by YogaCare. After reviewing all applications, we will be in touch with you by August 31, 2018 to let you know our decision about the scholarships.
