We offer SCHOLARSHIPS for this training. Teen Health Mississippi has funds, although limited, that can be used for partial and full training scholarships. We are committed to supporting participants who may be experiencing financial hardship. This includes individuals with no organizational affiliations and individuals whose organizations are currently facing financial challenges that need additional financial support.

All scholarship registrations must be submitted two weeks prior to the training you wish to attend.

Decisions will be made by the Teen Health Mississippi Scholarship Committee. You will receive confirmation once your form has been received. Since we have limited funding, we cannot guarantee that all requests can be granted. There is no fee to apply for a scholarship.
