Scholarship Fund

The scholarship fund is a way to support The Emotional Self-Defense Course by donating funds that allow full and partial scholarships.

Currently, there are two scholarship funds in place: a full scholarship for economic hardship, and a partial scholarship for Black folks and people of color, especially those doing various vocations offering collective healing.

(If you are a Native women or two-spirit person, all my courses are free to you. No scholarship needed. Just
contact me.) 

Full Scholarships

are donated by cis men to participate actively in dismantling patriarchy through making feminist education accessible to women and nonbinary people.
 

These scholarships are received by any woman or nonbinary person who promises

to complete all 12 Modules of the course &
 

1) who would not have enough  to cover their rent and food (or their children's food) next month if they purchased the course
 

2) who lives month-to-month without safety nets for savings or extra cash flow resources from partners, family, intergenerational wealth, etc.

If you'd like to receive a full scholarship, please contact me for the application process. The first round of scholarships will be distributed at the end of March, 2020.
If you'd like to offer a full $347 scholarship, please see the PayPal link. (And reach out if you need a payment plan!)  Feel free to contact me with any questions. 
 
While the process stays anonymous, I do invite the person taking the course to write a letter describing their learning, which I then give to you—so that feminist education ripples back toward you as a cis man. (And stay tuned for courses I will create just for cis men to do the emotional healing for themselves inside patriarchy).

Partial Scholarships

are donated by white women and men of color.

Partial scholarships cover $150 of the $347 tuition for a Black woman or Black nonbinary person, or a woman of color or nonbinary person of color, who is doing collective healing work. (The price for the course is then $197 for the participant after the scholarship is given.)
 
These partial scholarships acknowledge the invisible labor that is done by recipients inside patriarchy, white supremacy, and colonial histories, as well as their unpaid daily labor often done to educate white women and men of color on these systems. 
To donate this scholarship, please see the PayPal link below. It is set for you to decide your price—you can cover the full $150, or if you only have $5-$15, I compile and create a "co-op" scholarship (thanks Josephine Dervish for the language and idea) with smaller gifts (which are no less valuable—as every offering creates more love, healing, and justice).
Thank you so much for making feminist education accessible and sustainable!
If you have received a partial scholarship, you can pay the remaining $197 tuition for the course below.  (If you'd like to be on the waitlist to receive a scholarship, please contact me.)
Please note the course is nonrefundable.
