About the Scholarship
The IYANC board offers a limited number of IYANC Regional Scholarships each calendar year to help make the continued learning of Iyengar Yoga accessible to members who, due to financial constraints, otherwise could not participate. Scholarship funds must be used to study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) in a program (workshop, series, advanced studies, immersion, teacher education, etc.) at a venue within the IYANC region.
Eligibility Criteria
To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

• Be a current member of IYANC in good standing
• Display dedication to the practice of Iyengar Yoga
• Demonstrate how the funded endeavor will contribute to the growth of the Iyengar Yoga tradition in our region (priority will be given to applicants who can demonstrate how a scholarship will not only benefit them personally but will also benefit the wider regional community)
• Demonstrate financial need
• Applicant may apply for one scholarship only within a 12-month period
• Applicant agrees to provide proof of expenditures associated with the funded request
• Applicant provides an endorsement from a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT)

Due to the limited number of scholarships and limited amounts of funding available, not every applicant will receive a scholarship. Amounts to be awarded depend on the number of applications received, the cost of the intended program, the applicant’s financial resources, and the amount authorized annually by the IYANC board to be disbursed as scholarship.

Applications will be reviewed each quarter. Regional Scholarships will be awarded each December 1st, March 1st, June 1st, and September 1st. Applications must be received on the 1st of the prior month: November 1st, February 1st, May 1st, and August 1. Current IYANC Board members are ineligible for scholarships.
