Non-Profit and Small Business Scholarship
Recognizing that there are many small organizations that can benefit from the portfolio of programs offered by the Center but may not have sufficient financial resources, Washburn and Go Topeka have partnered to offer financial assistance to non-profits (501c3 or 501c6) and small businesses who have participated in the Entrepreneurial and Minority Business Development (EMBD) program. The support is intended for organizations of approximately twenty (20) employees or less.
The financial assistance is a shared cost between the applicant, Go Topeka, and Washburn University with each entity contributing a third of the regular course fee. For the LSS: Black Belt course, the cost to approved applicants is $770 (the remainder of the fee is shared by Washburn and Go Topeka).
Applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance. The review committee will notify the applicant within two weeks if the scholarship is approved, at which time the applicant has two weeks to register and pay for their portion of the course, otherwise the scholarship is forfeited. In addition, scholarship recipients commit to meeting other program requirements, including full attendance and assignments.
Restrictions and Limitations
The scholarship award may not be combined with any other discounts. Awards are granted on an as space available basis. Washburn reserves the right to limit the number of scholarship awards per class. The maximum amount of scholarship that may be awarded is $2,270 per individual or $5000 per organization, regardless of the number of participants from that organization.
