Mudra Scholarship Application


OFI has two scholarship funds The purpose of the Mudra Scholarship is to give access to people with fewer resources. If you identify as Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC), LBGQT+, gender fluid, differently abled, and/or live in a less wealthy region, you may also apply to our Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship.   Funds are limited and will be given to those who meet the purpose of the Fund(s) most clearly. Deadline for applications is two weeks before the Lab or Immersion.

Thank you!
