    DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP

    DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS 

    Earth Activist Training is committed to increasing the diversity of global permaculture and regenerative land movements. Permaculture teaches us to look at patterns, and we see a recurring pattern of devaluing and dehumanizing people of color that extends back through the centuries, including the histories of enslavement, the genocide of indigenous peoples, segregation, exploitation and much more. In acknowledgement, we offer diversity scholarships as a form of reparations.

    Supported by donations, a select number of pay-what-you-can Diversity Scholarships are available for Indigenous Peoples and Peoples of Color working in environmental and food justice.

    These scholarships are pay-what-you-can with the recommended value of 50% of standard tuition ($125), but any amount will be accepted and appreciated.

    ASL Interpretation

    Interpretation will be provided for classes with six or more students from the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. All sessions will have computer generated closed captions.

    Support students of color by donating to our Diveristy Schoorships: Donating here!
