Applications are reviewed three times each year by a committee of certified enneagram teachers.  We fund no more than two trainings at a time for any one person. If your application is not successful this time, you may apply again. People who have received scholarships from us in the past are also invited to apply for additional funding.

The primary goals of our scholarship program are to enable people to certify as Enneagram teachers and/or practitioners and take the Enneagram to new and diverse audiences in their home communities. Our Scholarship Committee strives to identify a capable, diverse, motivated range of students who would could not certify without financial support.
