Frequently Asked Questions

What does the scholarship provide?

There are three possible scholarship types:
  1. Tuition waiver to Dragontree Life Coaching training. 
    The next cohort begins in February 2019 and runs through July 2019. If you are selected for a scholarship, your tuition for the course will be paid directly to The Dragontree. You will receive all benefits and bonuses for your enrollment as every other Dragontree Life Coaching student.
  2. Tuition waiver to Dragontree Illuminator training. 
    Current graduates of Dragontree Life Coaching who meet other eligibility guidelines are welcome to apply for scholarships to attend advanced in-person Illuminator training in Boulder, CO. The next training event will be held August 2019, and space is reserved for scholarship students. If you are selected for this scholarship, your tuition and fees will be paid directly to The Dragontree for the event. All other expenses for the event, including travel, lodging, transportation, and meals outside of those provided during training, must be covered by the trainee.
  3. Travel grant to attend Dragontree Illuminator training in Boulder, CO.
    A limited number of travel grants will be made to assist with travel to in-person Illuminator training in Boulder, CO. You may apply for this scholarship in conjunction with the Illuminator training scholarship, or separately, depending on your needs. Whenever possible, covered travel expenses will be paid directly to travel vendors. If you are applying for both an Illuminator scholarship AND a travel grant, please indicate on your application if you cannot attend training if you only receive one type of scholarship.

What is Dragontree Life Coaching?

What do I do if I am selected for a scholarship?

If you are selected for a scholarship, you’ll be sent award terms to review and sign before your scholarship takes effect. You can view the award terms here.
Once your cohort begins, complete the coursework as usual. Upon graduation from the program, you will need to submit a final report summarizing your experience.
If your plans or timeline for completing the course change for any reason, you must contact The Well Life Foundation to discuss options. Failure to do so may result in revocation of all or part of your award, or ineligibility for future funding.

My household income is more than 250% of the poverty guideline, but I have extenuating circumstances. May I still apply?

Yes! We recognize that there are many circumstances that make household income an incomplete picture of one’s ability to pay for training. If your income is above the guidelines, you may apply and complete the waiver statement. In that statement, you must clearly explain why you are unable to pay for training.

I didn’t get selected for a scholarship. Can I find out why?

No. Deliberations of the Scholarship committee are confidential. Please note that we get many, many applications, and only have a limited number of funds for each cohort. Therefore, not every worthy applicant will receive a scholarship. We recommend trying again in another cycle.
