Scholarship Details, Terms, and Agreement
By offering a scholarship opportunity, we can help make classes and workshops accessible to students with extreme financial need and further our goal of a brighter, more conscious future.
Community Driven Awareness and Fundraising
The EarthSky People / Reiki Wellbeing Scholarship raises both funds and awareness, simultaneously, via social network sharing. You can help us spread the word by sharing https://EarthSkyPeople.org/Scholarship on your Facebook profile.
EarthSky People / Reiki Wellbeing will donate $10 to the scholarship fund for every public facebook share and will award the total funds raised at the end of the specified deadline with the selected applicant. This means that the more people share the link, the greater the funds awarded by the scholarship!

Donations are not tax deductible as this is a private fund and not a registered non-profit.
Anyone may apply to the scholarship however, one of the main criteria for selection is financial need. The goal of this program is to provide an opportunity to an individual who feels a deep calling to the training but would otherwise be unable to provide for their own basic needs. Please note that answers to questions on the application are submitted via the honor system. Keep in mind that there is a significant difference between having a hardship to pay vs absolutely being unable to find a way to pay for classes. Preference will be given to applicants in the latter situation.
Given the social media focus of the scholarship fundraising campaign, all applicants must share the scholarship Facebook post, as shown above. Applicant facebook posts will be reviewed upon submission of the application as well as during the final selection. If the post does not appear on applicants’ facebook timelines, said applicant is no longer eligible to receive the scholarship.
Work-Trade Oportunities and Referral Rewards
In addition to the scholarship, EarthSky People / Reiki Wellbeing also offers Work-Trade opportunities and Referral Rewards. Learn More>>

Forfeit scholarship funds will be applied toward a new scholarship.

Cancellation and Refund Policies
A great deal of staff time and expense is invested into the preparation and organization of individual classes. It is difficult and oftentimes impossible to recover costs and/or find a student to replace a cancelled registrant and so our cancellation and refund policies reflect this. Full refunds, minus $15 administrative fee for single day classes and a $30 admin fee for multi-day classes, are given to registrants who cancel with at least 7 days notice of the event. Cancellations made less than 7 days of the event forfeit a refund.
