Financial Assistance for iRest Programs

Thank you for your interest in applying for an iRest Institute scholarship! Our scholarship program is important to us as it helps to make these teachings available to the widest possible audience which in turn expands our community of trained teachers.

While we we take great care in considering each application, our scholarships are awarded based on a number of criteria in addition to an individual’s financial need, therefore we cannot guarantee a scholarship to all who apply.

The scholarships awarded cover only a portion of tuition but please do not let this deter you from applying. It's important to us to support as many people as possible to attend our events when and to what degree we have the capacity to do so. Please fill out as much information as you can on the application so that we may be best equipped to address your level of need.

Applying for Scholarship

The scholarship application deadline for in-person events is three weeks prior to the first day of the event, yet we encourage you to apply as early as possible in order to have the best chance of receiving support before our scholarship funds run out. If you are applying after the deadline, we will do our best to review your application but cannot guarantee that it will be processed. In addition, please indicate which event you are interested in attending as we cannot award general scholarships. There is no deadline to apply for a scholarship toward the Online iRest Level 1 Training through Yoga International.

We aim to notify each applicant of their scholarship status within ten days after their application is received. Please keep an eye on your inbox and *check your Spam folder* if you do not receive an award letter within 2 weeks of your application. Awards must be accepted prior to registration and cannot be redeemed after an applicant has registered for an event.

If applicable, early-bird rates for in-person events will be applied if you have submitted your application in advance of the early-bird deadline, though we cannot hold your spot in a training until you have officially registered. For our Online iRest Level 1 Training through Yoga International, scholarships cannot be combined with existing sales.

To apply, please fill out our online scholarship application, providing as much information as possible to help us understand your need as well as the nature of your interest in iRest Yoga Nidra.
