AHG Symposium Scholarship Information 

The AHG is awarding scholarships for the 2024 AHG Symposium in Black Mountain, NC and the online Symposium option. Anyone is welcome to apply. 

The American Herbalists Guild hosts an annual online silent auction, the proceeds of which support access to herbal education. The funds may be used for scholarships for symposia and webinars, membership dues, closed captioning services, complementary issues of JAHG, and access to other educational resources provided by the AHG.
Anyone experiencing financial need in herbal education is welcome to submit a scholarship request for access to AHG programming. We strongly encourage individuals from marginalized groups or those historically underrepresented within the American Herbalists Guild to apply for these opportunities. This includes but is not limited to, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ individuals, people with disabilities, and elderly individuals with fixed incomes. 
AHG staff manage the auction process. Auction items are donated, and donors are responsible for costs related to these products and services, for example, shipping. Donors are encouraged to provide their items to recipients promptly.
AHG pays for the online platform for the auction and is reimbursed from the raised funds. In addition, AHG charges a 15% administrative fee (with a minimum of $600) from the total raised for related staff expenses. The staff maintains a liability account, and a report of fund uses and balance will be presented to the Board of Directors annually.

Applicants will be notified by email on the decision of scholarship awards. Application deadline is August 15.
