    • Clarify your level of preparation with regard to what you hope to gain from the training (e.g., if you already have advanced yoga teacher training, you may not be eligible for a 200-hour training unless you define how you will use the YTT information from this training above and beyond what you already do)



Two types of scholarships are available for this YTT - a diversity scholarship and a psychiatry resident/postdoc scholarship.  More information about the application process can be found on the teacher training overview pageThe deadline for receipt of scholarship applications is March 15, 2020 by 5pm.  Scholarship applications must be preceded or accompanied by the completed YTT application.   NOTE - To receive the early-bird tuition, the YTT application must be received by the early-bird deadline (which is EARLIER than the scholarship deadline).
