Positive Discipline Association Scholarship PolicyThe Positive Discipline Association will make available one or more partial scholarships for each 2-day Core workshop listed on our website.
Scholarships are offered to make Positive Discipline Association workshops available to economically and socially diverse demographic groups. Prioritization will be given to those who intend to use Positive Discipline to teach others or to serve as a professional or volunteer in a social work or counseling capacity.
Scholarship applicants must:1. Write a letter indicating:
- The specific workshop (location and dates) the applicant would like to attend.
- Their commitment to attend the complete workshop.
- Why he or she is interested in attending the workshop.
- Why he or she needs a scholarship.
- How much of the workshop fee he or she is able to pay. (Individuals are asked to contribute $180 or more in order to cover basic workshop expenses, including the cost of books and materials valued at over $90.)
- How the participant plans to use the information and skills learned in the workshop.
2. Email the letter to the PDA Scholarship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Committee will:
- Review each application.
- Award Scholarships based on:
o timing of application,
o financial need of applicant,
o availability of scholarship funds, the intended use of the information and skills learned in the workshop.
- Give priority to those who intend to use the training to teach the PD model to others.
3. All applications received 30 days prior to the start of the workshop will be considered together. The first scholarship awards for a workshop will be granted 28 days prior to the workshop. Any applications received after this award cycle will be granted based on need and remaining fund availability.
4. All applicants will be notified by the PDA Board of Directors, or their designee, as to their scholarship status as soon as scholarships are granted.
5. The Positive Discipline Association does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age or disability.
