The Diversity Scholars Fund provides funding to African American students to complete the Bay Area Center for Waldorf Teacher Training (BACWTT) 3-year Waldorf teacher training program. Scholars can receive support to complete the 4-month Foundation Studies as an entry point, before deciding to continue with the full 3-year training.
It is our intention to deepen and broaden the representation of diverse voices and perspectives that enrich the quality of a BACWTT education, as well as to be transformed by the diverse perspectives that our students bring. We continue the evolution of Waldorf education to meet the tremendous need for anti-racist and anti-bias education.
*We are fundraising to provide tuition for 2 students to receive a full 1-year scholarship. Thanks to the support of a generous supporter, all donations will be matched up to $10,000!*
