Social Justice U Scholarship Fund
As part of our commitment to accessibility and social justice, Social Justice U sets aside $1 for every $4 earned through course sales into a scholarship fund.
Scholarships provide discounts for the course for those with limited income and wealth. The discounted rates are on a sliding scale from $60 to being free of charge. Please use the form below to apply for the scholarship.
Who the Scholarship Is For and Why
Social Justice U's courses are all developed and led by marginalized people and we're committed to paying them for their labor. We ask that if you are able to pay for a course, you pay as much as you can to support the course leaders and the Social Justice U community as a whole. Your payments also go into the Scholarship Fund, allowing people with less resources to access all course materials.
Standard courses are priced at around $78 for two to three months of lessons. If you are unable to pay the approximately $7 to $10 per week due to limited income, then this scholarship is for you. However, if that is something you can comfortably afford, then this scholarship is not intended for people with your financial means.
If you are able to save the $7-$10 per week and are therefore able to pay the full price, please do not take advantage of our use of the honor system. We depend on people with enough financial means to pay the full price in order to both continue offering courses as well as to subsidize those who have limited financial means. Without enough people paying the full price, Social Justice U would need to shut down.
In our community, we have people who are on disabilities and other fixed incomes, have been long-term unemployed, and are coming out of difficult situations. They want to take this course but can't afford the full price. To help us award as many scholarships as possible, we ask that you select the highest amount you can reasonably pay.
Other Ways To Lower The Cost
You can also get a 25% off referral discount. So if you get 4 friends to register, then you get the course for free!
If you've enrolled in another online course with Social Justice U, you also get a 15% discount. Just let us know via the Contact Us form and we'll refund you the difference.
So Please Remember...
If you can afford to save $7-$10 per week, please do NOT apply for this scholarship and take the place of someone in greater financial need. Thank you
