The Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership offers scholarships to member organizations, which are made possible through the generosity of the Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation. We strongly encourage organizations to consider their capacity development needs when applying, as scholarships can be awarded to more than one individual.
- Step 1: Please complete the Scholarship Application Form
This form must be completed in lieu of the online registration process each time your organization requests scholarship funding for a workshop. More than one scholarship may be applied for at one time. We suggest applying early in order to guarantee a place in the workshop. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Workshops are subject to closure once they reach capacity limits.
- Step 2: After applying, please allow 2-3 business days for processing. You will receive an approval email with instructions on paying any remaining balance owed.
- Step 3: Once you have received an approval email, pay the remaining amount owed no later than 3 business days prior to the workshop.
- Step 4: You will receive a confirmation email with directions at least 5 business days prior to the workshop. If you do not receive this email, please call our office at 407-975-6414.
