Who is Equity Access intended for?
This scholarship is intended for those who identify as Black or Indigenous birth workers, pregnancy-focused bodyworkers or childbirth educators who are actively working or teaching in the pregnancy and birth communities, or are enrolled in a birth-related education program. The scholarship for the Professional conference is not intended for retired birth workers or people who are not actively teaching or attending births. We are also accepting applications for those who identify as Black or Indigenous, who are not professionals, to attend the parent conference in 2022.
If recipients of Equity Access scholarships are able to pay some of the conference fee, Spinning Babies® may be able to award more scholarships to more people. There will be a place to indicate your preference in the application. Applicants’ preference for a full or partial scholarship will not affect their eligibility for the scholarship.
The application will be open from May 2 – June 20, 2022.
Applicants will be notified of their application status between July 4-8, 2022 .
Recipients of an Equity Access Scholarship may register for the confluence through August 15, 2022.
