The RWS Diversity Scholarship Program

Announcing the Restorative Wellness Solutions Diversity Scholarship Program! 

We recognize that our field is mostly comprised of white, able-bodied, cisgender women.

With this scholarship, we aim to help increase diversity in the functional nutrition space.

Thank you to all who applied for the August 2021 diversity scholarship! Our next scholarship program will be offered in early 2022.

We’re offering a diversity scholarship for our August 2021 Level 1 course, Mastering the Art and Science of Gastrointestinal Healing! Two recipients will receive scholarships that cover half of your Level 1 tuition: a value of $997.50. 

Note: This scholarship MUST be put toward our August 2021 Level 1 class. No deferrals allowed.

RWS is seeking self-identifying minority applicants of all backgrounds and identities, across race, color, ethnicity, national origin or ancestry, citizenship, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or disability. Applicants will not be discriminated against based on these or other protected categories or social identities.

We are committed to the full inclusion of all applicants. If you require an accommodation to participate in the application process, please let us know.

You must be accepted into the RWS program in order to qualify for this scholarship. For more information about our application process and Level 1 course, click here.
