Our Equity Commitment
to make the world a more MNDFL and equitable place.
are reserved for scholarship candidates
are allocated for marginalized identities
MNDFL is committed to looking at equity differently, not perpetuating broken systems, and taking measures to ensure a greater balance in all that we do.
To live the values we aspire to realize, white-identifying facilitators will be paired with BIPOC-identifying facilitators. Conversely, if there is only one facilitator, that facilitator will be BIPOC-identifying.
We are committed to more representation and the creative, innovative offering of mindfulness in society. We will select scholarship recipients whose identity, life experiences, and purpose add to the mindfulness constellation. Additionally, applicants will be chosen based on their level of commitment to learn, change, and shift their potential and capacity.
Scholarship Distribution for Applicants of the Certification Pathway Only
The MNDFL Training program allocates scholarships — both full and partial — for 20% of every class.
Of that 20%:
- 75% is allocated for marginalized identities with challenged economic resources
- 25% for innovative leaders in non-traditional spaces - tech, music, medicine, etc.
If there are 100 people in a class, there will be 20 scholarships. If there are 50 people in a class, there will be 10 scholarships, and so on.
Once we have exhausted the available scholarships for each, they will be available for the next class.
This structure -- and transparency around it -- assures the integrity of scholarship allocation in that it is predetermined, and is also balanced to assure that it is sustainable for our human benefit business model.
Those individuals that have the means to pay the full program fee help us to address systemic inequity and make this generous offering possible while fueling the expansion of diversity and innovation of this next iteration of mindfulness and how it is represented.
This intention lies as the core guiding principle of the MNDFL Training, its content, development, and implementation.

If you are applying for the Certification path, you must first receive your scholarship acceptance into and complete the Mindfulness Intensive Training.
Once you are accepted into the CMI program, your scholarship will be applied there, as well. If you receive a partial scholarship, you will pay the balance at that time.
(The MNDFL-sponsored scholarships are currently underwritten by MNDFL and M3O. We partner with organizations and institutions to award additional scholarships beyond 20% as we’re able. In the future, we will have a scholarship fund to extend further support. We also intend to develop an Award program that is not need-based.)
