BIPOC Scholarship Opportunity

BIPOC Scholarship Opportunity – MAPOF program Fall 2022 Intake

The Process Work Institute is pleased to announce a limited number of partial tuition scholarship opportunities for BIPOC prospective students applying for the Master of Arts in Process-Oriented Facilitation and Conflict Studies (MAPOF) Fall 2022 intake.

  • Note that due to current constraints, this special BIPOC scholarship opportunity is only available to persons who do not require an international student visa to enroll in the MAPOF program.  We welcome all other BIPOC prospective students  to apply for our regular scholarship and workstudy opportunities.

These BIPOC scholarships are provided through philanthropic donations and are intended to support access to Processwork training in the context of historical and present day systemic inequities that disadvantage people of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and mixed-race heritage.   PWI seeks to support BIPOC process-oriented facilitators and their contribution to a sustainable society based on deep democracy.

These opportunities are provided as part of PWI’s commitment to increasing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Processwork training.  PWI seeks to improve the experience of people of color in our community, to address the unfair and painful impacts of systemic racism, and to contribute to the dismantling of white supremacy so that students, faculty and graduates are able to flourish in our learning community.

Selection Criteria

This scholarship seeks to increase access to the Masters level Processwork training opportunity to members of historically underrepresented and systemically oppressed racialized communities within the US.  Eligible scholarship applicants will be selected on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Strength of interest and calling toward Processwork training.
  • Clarity and creativity of intention to use the MAPOF training to benefit the community.
  • Financial need – full and partial scholarships available, allocated by need.


Applicants must complete the MAPOF application and be accepted into the program for the Fall 2022 intake to be eligible for the BIPOC Scholarship.
