Pleiadian Institute Scholarships & Grants are funded by Indigo Education Foundation. A major initiative of the Indigo Education Foundation is to support holistic health professionals and to improve distance learning opportunities through merit based and need based awards.

You can apply for a scholarship or a grant at any time. Here is the process:


To be eligible, applicants must be committed to beginning a career and/or professional development in energy healing.
1. Decide on the scholarship or grant that best suits your program of interest and financial needs. You can only apply for one scholarship or grant at a time.
