Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship


OFI has two scholarship funds that support those who are in financial need and wish to study. You can apply to one or both. Funds are limited and will be given to those who meet the purpose of the Fund(s) most clearly. Application deadline is two weeks before a Lab or Immersion. 

If you are in financial need but DO NOT meet the qualifications below, you may apply to our Mudra Financial Aid Scholarship.


OFI provides scholarships to increase the diversity of OFI students and teachers. To qualify for the scholarship, prospective students must demonstrate a commitment to diversity as it relates to their interest in mindful movement for personal healing, professional growth, and community building. Priority is given to applicants who belong to racial, religious, cultural, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic, and ability groups that have traditionally been underrepresented populations in the field of mindful movement and conscious dance in the region in which they live.

Purpose of the Fund

With this Scholarship, Open Floor International is working to ensure that its students and teachers are reflective of the world where Open Floor is practiced. We are actively looking to expand our reach to include more people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQI+, gender fluid, differently abled, and/or live in less wealthy regions. If you identify with one of these communities, we would like to hear from you.
