Sumi’s Touch Doula Training Scholarship

Since the inaugural training, Sumi has never turned a student (or client) away for a lack of funds. This however means that she has volunteered hundreds of hours to this work. After much thought and guidance we have come up with a much more sustainable system in closing the access gap. 

The scholarship fund is an accumulation of grassroots fundraising, grants, and private donations. The purpose of this fund is to ensure that people are able to obtain training that is comprehensive and relevant to the population they will be serving. At this moment, each cohort will have 4 partial (50%) scholarships awarded. The remaining half will be paid via the student. This fund is for those who otherwise would not be able to attend, even with a long term payment plan. Before applying please consider ALL of our many payment plan options. If you are able, please consider becoming a monthly donor of this fund to support in closing the access gaps which inherently saves lives!
