    Postpartum Doula Skills Workshop Scholarship Application Guidelines


    NAPS Doulas is working towards creating Social Justice within our organization by dismantling our institutionalized racism and classism. Our end goal is to become a multicultural (inclusive) organization. As such, we have formed a committee to work towards that goal, the NASE Committee: NAPS Alliance for Social Equity.

    One of the many steps towards meeting our goals is offering a full scholarship to a person of color for a DONA approved Postpartum Doula Skills Workshop, mentorship through NAPS Doulas, and a one-year membership to NAPS Doulas following completion of the workshop.

    The guidelines for receiving this scholarship are:
     The applicant must live in the Puget Sound area with the intention of practicing in this area for at least one year after completion of workshop.
     Full scholarship is for a DONA approved Postpartum Doula Skills Workshop in the Puget Sound area. Simkin Center at Bastyr offers three workshop per year: http://www.bastyr.edu/simkincenter/postpartum-doula-training. There may be other DONA approved workshops offered throughout the greater Seattle area. You can check DONA International’s workshops for potential other offerings: http://www.dona.org/develop/find_a_workshop.php
     Training must be completed within one year from date of scholarship award.
     The award funds will be given directly to the institution/person conducting the DONA approved workshop.
     Upon completion of the workshop, a one-year membership to NAPS Doulas will be awarded to the recipient.
     Please state if you have a specific training date in mind.
