GBN BIRTH WORKERS OF COLOR SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Due August 1, 2020 - Applicants will be notified of any awards by August 15, 2020
Maternal Mortality rates in Georgia are abysmal compared to the rest of the country, with African American women being 3-4 times more likely to die from a childbirth related complication than their white counterparts. Georgia Birth Network is striving to be part of the solution when it comes to reducing the disparity of access to birth workers of color compared to the abundance of white birth workers.
Georgia Birth Network is awarding up to $2,000, twice a year to any birth worker of color working toward certification in their field.
Examples of birth workers are doulas, childbirth educators, birth photographers, massage therapists, lactation
consultants, chiropractors, and midwives.
The scholarship is NOT limited to Georgia Birth Network members only. However, priority will be given to its applying
members. Awards will be based on need, urgency, and intention of use. Must be at least 18 years old to apply.
Please fill out application below and email the signed application along with a letter of recommendation to
or mail to 3660 Canton Rd, Suite 240 Marietta, GA 30066, addressed to Georgia Birth Network
c/o Rachel Hart.
