Dear Friends of BACWTT,
We are very happy to launch our Diversity Scholars Fund. Building on the success of last year, we are launching this now in anticipation of students enrolling in the 2022-2023 year. This campaign will run until December 2022—or until we reach our fundraising goal.
Please support us in the important work that will impact the future of our schools.
The BACWTT Diversity Scholars Fund
The Diversity Scholars Fund provides funding for African American students to complete the Bay Area Center for Waldorf Teacher Training’s (BACWTT) Waldorf Teacher Training program. Scholars may receive support to complete the 13-week Foundation Studies program as an entry point before deciding whether to continue with the full 3-year training.
It is our intention to deepen and broaden the representation of diverse voices and perspectives that enrich the quality of a BACWTT education, as well as to be transformed by the diverse perspectives that our students bring. We continue the evolution of Waldorf education to meet the tremendous need for anti-racist and anti-bias education.
We are fundraising to provide tuition for 4 students to receive a full 1-year scholarship.
Diversity Scholars Fund Mission Statement
