From Ginger Webb, herbalist and founder of Sacred Journey School of Herbalism:
I offer Reparations Scholarships for our Herbal Foundations: Level 1 program. My intent with the scholarships is to offer access to what I have to offer, i.e. an herbal education, to people who are institutionally oppressed by the system in place in the U.S. because of the color of their skin or their heritage. [If you are not sure whether you qualify or not, please feel free to ask.]
To apply for a scholarship, we ask only that you tell us about yourself and tell us how much of a scholarship you need to be able to take the course you wish to take. These scholarships are not “gifts” — they are reparations, however small, but heartfelt from person to person. I offer these reparations because it is the right thing to do, and I am grateful to be able to do so.
Applications for scholarships are typically open January through April of each year for Level 1 classes beginning in September. Applicants are notified in May. Exceptions can be made, so feel free to reach out!
