How does your school or program define a qualified recipient for your scholarship? : The goal of Simkin Center Leadership Fund (SCLF) scholarship program is to provide tuition reduction support to emerging leaders in the allied birth vocations.
The SCLF is a merit scholarship with the intent to increase the number of childbirth professionals with the desire, knowledge, skill and community membership or involvement to practice successfully in underserved ethnic, cultural, socio-economic and geographic communities.
The SCLF offers a partial tuition waiver (reduction in tuition amount) for applicants who meet or exceed the criteria and show exceptional merit. Awards are made in the form of reduced tuition (not cash) and are generally in the $100 to $200 range. Funds are limited. There are normally one to three awards made per course section. Early applications are encouraged.
Criteria - First consideration is given to applicants who wish to, or already offer, birth support services in underserved communities and who display the skills and connections needed to serve women and families in those communities. Applicants must be able to demonstrate their connection with social services or other networks within the community. Financial need may also be considered.
