IHeLp 2022 Scholarships

Due to the generosity of our donors, the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine (AWCIM) is offering a limited number of scholarships up to $5,000 for the Integrative Health & Lifestyle program (IHeLp) to eligible health care professionals for our class which begins in January 2022.


As a Center, we value the contribution of students from varied communities.Not only does this promise to enhance our educational environment, but also translates into delivering integrative health knowledge to marginalized, under-represented, and under-resourced communities. We recognize the need for the insights and perspectives of health professionals who both come from and serve these populations. These voices are critical to addressing the inequities in health care, the growth of integrative health and medicine, and decreasing health disparities.

1440 Scholarship – Up to $5,000

The 1440 Foundation scholarships will be awarded to select healthcare professionals who self-identify as under-represented in medicine and healthcare and currently work with underserved populations.

Grace Scholarship – Up to $3,000
