Doula School Scholarship Fund


Our priority is to provide a training where everyone feels welcome and among peers. Our training is based on principles of anti-racism, anti-oppression and the values of diversity and inclusion. We want our trainings to be a safe space for all. We want our profession to become more diverse to be able to support all families in a way that is culturally relevant to them. All of these priorities form the basis for our training.


Doula School is committed to growing the doula profession and increasing access of doula services to a more diverse client base. Creating diversity in client base requires diversity among doulas. Workshop scholarships are offered based on a demonstrated commitment to community service AND financial need.

Priority is given to all applicants who increase diversity in the doula profession, specifically people identifying as TSLGBTQIA+ and BIPOC (Black, Indiginous, People of Color).
