What is included in scholarship: I will offer 2 scholarships per NRP certification class that I offer for birth worker of color (midwife, nurse, doula, etc). I offer classes in Wisconsin and in the Chicago area. There is <$30 fee charged online before the class by the American Academy of Pediatrics for the online exam portion which I do not have control over, but the $150 class fee can be waived.

Type of school is:: NRP Training

If not a distance program, where is your school located:: Eastern part of Wisconsin, northern Illinois. Am certainly willing to travel further if I can make it work with my schedule.

Type of Scholarship: Partial  Scholarship

Does scholarship include room and board?: No

Does student buy books?  : Yes

Additional comments:: Full scholarship for the class is offered for 2 people per class, but there is still an exam fee online that is charged by AAP. I usually travel to where there is a group that is looking for NRP training, so I do not have room and board to offer, though whatever group is hosting the class may well be able to do this and I could ask if someone would find this helpful. There is a text book that is required for the class available from the AAP website. Many times people are able to borrow this book from someone else in their community, since so many people have had to purchase it in the past. It is important to use the 6th NRP Textbook edition.

Student Midwives from which racial group qualify for this scholarship?: All Women of Color

Name of institution: Cultural Competency and Global Midwifery Skills Seminar

Contact person name: Vicki Penwell

email: info@gmail.com

Website: http://www.mercyinaction.com/cultural-competency/

Address: New Mexico, California, Virginia, New York

 Type of scholarship: Seminar

What is included in scholarship: This 2 day seminar is for Midwives, doctors, nurses, doulas or any other health care workers who serve women of different ethnic or sub-culture groups in America OR who may volunteer in developing countries where maternal mortality is high and respect for women is low. The needs of women in the area of culturally sensitive, respectful and evidence-based maternity care is actually a life and death matter; women of color die in childbirth and lose their babies at birth at rates much higher than white women, everywhere in the world.

 This course will focus on meeting United Nations Millennial Development Goals #4 and #5 (Reducing child mortality and reducing maternal mortality) through advanced skills, new use of technology (such as the anti-shock garment to prevent maternal deaths and the thermo- dots for preventing neonatal deaths),  and the culturally sensitive and respectful care of women during pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and the entire childbearing season. Anyone providing health care to women anywhere in the world will benefit from this course.

Type of school is:: Seminar
