The first days of September are a mix of feelings of stress, responsibility, and joy as I get to announce the recipients of my coaching grant for the second year in a row. This grant is meant to help neurodivergent clients who have financial barriers to coaching services.
If you have not heard of this grant before, you can read more here https://www.brilliantlydiverse.com/the-mikel-rijsdijk-memorial-grant/ The application process is opened once a year in early summer, and winners are announced in early September. If you, or your company, would like to sponsor the grant or know potential sponsors, I would LOVE for us to connect.
Because I am really committed to the goal of making coaching accessible even to people with fewer means, I have decided to not only reward a total of 3 full grants. But I also decided to create 4 partial grants for the Strengths-Based portion of the program.
For reasons of privacy, I will not be announcing the grant recipients publicly. Thank you all who helped spread the message to those who needed to know of the grant and I hope you will help me again in the spring of next year to repeat the process.
For now, I cannot wait to get to work with this group. For those who want to join the Strengths-Based group coaching program that these recipients will be starting off with, I will make announcements for the paid participation in this program SOON!
This grant has been made possible by the generous collaboration of the Neurodiversity Foundation – who consulted on its form and function and will hopefully help me reach many worthy applicants. And the Neurodiversity Education Academy – which allowed me to offer some of my income-generating courses to grant recipients for free.
