CAN! Education's Women & Minority Scholarship Program

Cannabis Horticultural Science Course, Summer & Fall Terms 2017!

CAN! recognizes that diversity in leadership and work force makes us stronger, more adaptable, and more imaginative.  We know this because the same is true for plant health when we cultivate a biologically-dynamic soil environment.  We also recognize that women and minorities have suffered the greatest under cannabis prohibition (as have soil microbes under conventional agriculture), so CAN! Education would like to make restitution and reward promising women and minorities in the cannabis industry by offering six scholarships for the Cannabis Horticultural Science Course, Winter 2017 term, totaling nearly $3000 in awards.

There are two scholarship categories: 1) Women and 2) Minorities.  Scholarships will be awarded as follows:
• Two Full-Tuition Scholarships, one each for Women and Minorities (each valued at $995)
• Two Half-Tuition Scholarships, two each for Women and Minorities (each valued at $497.50)

How to Apply: Submit a 1-2 page essay describing your vision for a culturally-diverse, socially-responsible, and environmentally-sustainable future for the cannabis industry.  Include separately a brief statement of your financial need or other hurdles.  Judging criteria includes both essay and financial need.  Send in .pdf or .doc format to: education@CanResearch.net or mail to: CAN! Research, 1645 9th Ave. SE, Suite 186, Albany, OR 97322.  Deadline to apply is Thursday June 1, 2017 11:59 PM (for Summer Term) and Tuesday August 1, 2017 11:59 PM (for Fall Term).

Awards will be announced and awardees will be notified on June 5th and August 7th, 2017.
Terms:
• Women who are also minorities may apply for either or both application categories.
• Applicants for the Women category must be a biological woman or identify as a woman or both.
• Applicants for the Minority category must have at least 25 percent Asian-Indian, Asian-Pacific, Black, Hispanic, or Native American heritage.
