Overview

We have a small pot of funds available through our Career Initiatives project for people who are wanting to take classes or start certification programs starting between Fall '21 and Spring '22. This application is intended to support tuition, but may also be used toward school supplies (e.g., an inexpensive laptop, webcam for on-line classes, etc.). Funds will be awarded on a rolling basis until they are gone.

If you are someone who is interested in taking a course or certification program, please review the following requirements:

* Must live in Western Massachusetts
* Must have limited other resources for school and related expenses
* Must have experienced significant struggle in your life (psychiatric diagnosis, trauma, homelessness, problems with substances, etc.)
* Must NOT be employed directly by the Wildflower Alliance or its umbrella (The Western Mass Training Consortium) or an immediate family member of an employee
 
If you meet the basic requirements, please complete this short application. We will get back to you as soon as possible, and in no more than 10 regular work days (weekdays not including federal or state holidays). 
 
If you have questions about this application, please contact Sean at sean@wildfloweralliance.org.
 
PLEASE NOTE: While there is no specific limit to how much you can request, our funds are very limited so please bear that in mind when applying. The average range has been $500 to $1000. We may contact you with follow-up questions before making a final decision about your request.
