BPOC Free Bursary Application Process and Forms

Welcome to the bursary application process dear friends, we are so excited to offer these free bursary places to Black and People of Colour (BPOC) who would like to experience the Mindfulness Based Inclusion Training (MBIT) designed to Dismantle Racism and Social Inequalities collectively (DRASIC).

Before applying, please do check out the DRASIC page for important information about the project. It is also important to highlight that there are 10 Free bursary places per course, therefore your commitment and attendance matters. By applying you are agreeing to attend and participate in the online course sessions specified as an expression of solidarity and reciprocity for the other BPOC members on the course.

To help support the allocation process, it is important that you check your availability carefully and select any of the course cohorts that you will be able to attend, as this will increase your chances of gaining a place on the course.

The normal cost of this training is currently set at £495. However, we are delighted to be able to offer free bursaries to 10 members from BPOC communities on each cohort.

Bursaries offer an equitable opportunity to meet the needs of social inequality in our communities. As such, in the spirit of generosity, no one is obligated to pay for a place on this round of MBIT DRASIC.

However, all applicants will be invited to join our online community to participate and develop a culturally relevant and context-specific mindful practice with others.

IMPORTANT: Following completion of your bursary application, it is important to check your spam/ junk folders for emails from The Urban Mindfulness Foundation and to select ‘never block sender’ to facilitate communication, particularly if you are signing up for the first time.
