2017 Kelly Considine Scholarships – Virginia

Application due by June 26th.

We are thrilled to announce the Kelly Considine Scholarships opportunities and applications.

Kelly Considine was a beautiful, talented, loving yoga teacher who dedicated her life to helping others with cancer grow strong, find courage, laugh and heal through the powerful practice of yoga.  Kelly inspired us to create these scholarships in 2013 to immortalize her love and dedication.  We have since helped twenty one compassionate yoga teachers, like Kelly, to gain specialized training so they can better serve the cancer survivors and patients in their communities. During her life, Kelly helped hundreds of cancer survivors. Through these scholarships, she is helping thousands today. And that ripple of support will continue.

We are thrilled to be able to offer two $500 scholarships to deserving individuals to attend the Virginia Beach training. (Scholarships will be available for selected other locations to be announced early January 2017.)

Who should apply?

  • The applicant must be a yoga teacher with 200 hours or more of training who works with or has a desire to work with cancer survivors and patients in treatment. Additionally, other health care professionals with a strong yoga practice (e.g. physical therapists, nurses, etc) are encouraged to apply.
  • Our mission is to help those that need it the most. Therefore, our hope is to provide these scholarships to low-income teachers or teachers that have the will to advance their certification but lack the financial support.
  • Additionally, like Kelly, we want all recipients to ‘pay it forward’ and to work with and support low-income and underserved communities of cancer survivors.
  • Recipients must be able to attend the 45 hour Online+Weekend Training Program based on their selected program. And they must be able to pay the balance of tuition ($295) plus any travel expenses that are incurred.
  • Please choose program locations that are close to your residence and reduce travel costs.
