Scholarship Application for the Talking Toxins course
Low-income and BIPOC communities in the US and abroad often experience disproportionate exposures to environmental chemicals that can have devastating effects on individual and community-level health. These communities also often lack access to healthy food, green spaces, and proper healthcare, which makes them even more vulnerable to the effects of these exposures.
My goal in offering scholarship seats to this course is to help bring practical, and actionable education on minimizing toxic exposures to those communities who need it most.
Full scholarships are being made available for students who can demonstrate that they are actively working at a community level within low-income, and/or BIPOC communities on some facet of health education. For folks that are in the very beginning stages of their business or in doing community level work, please wait to apply until you have some means of demonstrating your work in these spaces.
At the moment, we are making 12 scholarships available each year.
If you feel that you meet the requirements for this scholarship, please fill out the form below, and tell me about yourself, what you do, and what you hope to do with this education!
