****Applications for the December 2019 Training-of-Trainers course are due by August 1st, and applicants will be notified by by September 1st.****
We anticipate being able to make 2 seats available for this TOT. Priority is given to trainers who are: transgender or non-binary, people of color, from underrepresented/high need areas, people with transgender or non-binary loved ones, and/or do not have sponsorship from an organization to attend. Scholarships will be made at the discretion of TTI based on responses to the application questions. Due to high demand for scholarships, unfortunately, not all applicants will be selected. Applicants who do not receive scholarships may apply again for future TOTs.
The fine print:
• We offer both sliding scale and full scholarships. When individuals are able to contribute at the sliding scale level, that helps us to increase the total number of scholarships we are able to offer while still fairly compensating our training team. Full scholarships are in the amount of $700-$350, depending on the registration type. Recipients are asked to contribute the remaining $100 to help partially cover the costs of their copy of The Teaching Transgender Toolkit, food and other costs associated with running this event.
• Scholarships are towards the registration fees only. Support for travel or accommodations is not currently available, though we hope to make this available soon.
• TTI respects the privacy of those who apply for scholarships. We know that financial matters are highly personal and private, so we do not publicly announce who applied for or received scholarships. Your application may be shared with a select group of professionals who help make decisions about who will be awarded scholarships. The information in the application will be held as confidential by any/all people involved in making these decisions.
Since there are a limited number of scholarships available and many people who want to access them, we ask that you apply for this scholarship if you are truly not be able to afford attending, and, you are reasonably certain that you will be able to attend. We will be holding more TOTs in the future, so there will be other opportunities to apply/attend.
