About Scholarships

Financial Assistance for iRest Programs

Thank you for your interest in applying for an iRest Institute scholarship! Our scholarship program is important to us as it helps to make these teachings available to the widest possible audience which in turn expands our community of trained teachers.

Please note the following prior to completing and application:

  • Scholarships awarded cover only a portion of tuition. We are not able to award full scholarships at this time, and most of our scholarships are for modest amounts.
  • Scholarships are awarded based on a number of criteria and we cannot guarantee a scholarship to all who apply.
  • Please fill out as much information as possible on the application so that we may be best equipped to address your level of need.
  • It is required to list the particular event for which you are applying, otherwise we will not be able to consider your application.
  • Retreats, workshops, and any events other than iRest Trainings are for personal practice only. If you want to be able to teach iRest to others, you must complete an iRest Level 1 Training.

    Scholarship Application Deadlines

    • In-person attendance: 3 weeks prior to the start of the event
    • Livestream attendance: 10 days prior to the start of the event

      We encourage you to apply as early as possible in order to have the best chance of receiving financial support before our scholarship funds run out.

      • Please keep an eye on your inbox and *check your Spam folder* if you do not receive an award letter within 2 weeks of your application.
      • Awards must be accepted prior to registration and cannot be redeemed after an applicant has registered for an event.
      • We cannot hold your spot in a training until you have officially registered.
