MBSR Facilitation Certificate
BIPOC Equity Scholarship
Scholarship Update – June 30th, 2021
We at the Centre for Mindfulness Studies (CMS) have decided to delay the commencement of Round Two of our 2021 BIPOC Equity Scholarship.
After consultation with our community members, we have come to realize that some aspects of our scholarship application process and training of racialized applicants were not being done through an anti-oppression lens. We recognize that the Centre has already received several early applications and we are grateful to those applicants. We apologize for this delay.
The Centre will use this time to work in collaboration with our DEI committee and an antiracism and equity consultant to enhance and evolve our scholarship and programs to embody anti-oppressive and anti-racist approaches and practice.
It is our top priority to ensure that as we expand our MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Certification training program to reach more racialized individuals and that we do so thoughtfully and with consideration. We will be announcing the re-opening of our updated BIPOC Equity scholarship in October 2021.
We will be holding current applications and will be honouring them for the fall 2021 start. We appreciate your enthusiasm and your patience.
