Commitment to community is a core belief of the Hudson Yoga Project, and this Scholarship Program was created as a way to honor that commitment. The HYP 200-HR YTT Scholarship will be given to a candidate who demonstrates a financial need as well as a desire to use yoga to better their own life and the lives of those around them.
Candidates for the scholarship must complete the scholarship application (information below), submit a personal essay, and attend one class at the HYP taught by a lead teacher trainer. The winner will receive a full scholarship for the 200-Hour Teacher Training and, upon completion of the program, will be a certified yoga instructor. Candidates must be 18 years of age to apply and are required to volunteer for 2 hours per week at the studio throughout the length of the program.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and use the email subject: Scholarship Application
Include your essay as an attached Microsoft Word Document. Essays should consist of how you want to use yoga as a way to not only improve your own life but improve the lives of others as well.
Additionally, please include the below information in your email:
- Full Name
- Phone Number
- How long you have been practicing yoga
- Where you currently practice and the style
