We wish to support those who are members of any community that has problems accessing holistic health care such as: people of color, indigenous (tribal membership not required), and LGBTQ. We also want to support activists who are working to protect the water and earth, and volunteer health care workers currently working in underserved communities. We are also prioritizing those who are coming from out of the area who may have travel expenses.

Deadline for scholarships is Nov 27th, but we will let people know sooner, so they can make plans.
