MAPS Health Equity Scholarship Application Form

Thanks to the support of the MAPS Health Equity Fund, we are honored to offer a number of full ($5,000) and partial ($2,500) scholarships for tuition fees for the 2021 training program. 
 
The MAPS Health Equity Scholarship is part of MAPS and MAPS PBC’s larger commitment to increasing inclusion and equity in our programs and advancing the initiatives outlined by the MAPS Health Equity Fund.  
 
By awarding funds through the MAPS Health Equity Scholarship, the MDMA Therapy Training Program hopes to achieve the following in 2021: 
  • Create a more accessible training program to ensure that the network of MDMA-Assisted Therapy Practitioners is vast and able to support diverse communities suffering from a spectrum of trauma. 
  • Increase the number of MAPS-Certified MDMA-Assisted Therapy Practitioners who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color. 
  • Train and learn from more therapy practitioners who live and work in historically marginalized communities. 
  • Foster connection and validate unique experiences of trauma in marginalized communities. 

 

The MAPS Health Equity Scholarship will be granting funds to qualified practitioners under 3 main criteria:  

  • Black, Indigenous, and all practitioners of color
