Teacher Training Scholarship Fund

Abiding Heart’s teacher training is open to teachers and aspiring teachers who wish to bring Buddhist-imbued content and Steinerian pedagogy, combined with insights from developmental neuroscience and psychology, into their teaching practice. Our training is particularly suitable for those who wish to:

  • teach in existing Buddhist contemplative based kindergartens and primary schools (class 1-8)

  • teach at an education programme associated with Buddhist or dharma/ contemplative centres

  • set up a Buddhist or contemplative based kindergarten 

  • set up an early childhood education programme for Buddhist or contemplative based centres

  • teach in Buddhist monastic schools

Abiding Heart Diploma Scholarship Fund

Abiding Heart Education offers a 2-year Diploma in Teacher Training which is open to both international and Himalayan students. The academic requirements are rigorous, in that a Bachelor’s degree is preferred, and a high-level of English is required. 

These teacher training courses are offered on a fee-paying basis and Abiding Heart Education is endeavouring to build a scholarship fund for successful applicants who require financial assistance. 

Students are asked to cover the cost of arts and crafts materials independently. In the case of students who are unable to cover this cost, they may apply for financial support. Our goal is to ensure that nobody will be turned away because of financial difficulties. 


Abiding Heart Certificate Scholarship Fund

Abiding Heart also offers a Certificate in Teacher Training on a full-time (2-years) and part-time (4-years) basis for the Himalayan communities. We offer these courses free of charge and request donations insofar as people can pay them but no one is turned away from our courses. Given the hardship and economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we are seeking sponsors to help us keep these courses running. 

  • You can sponsor a Himalayan teacher trainee for $50 a month.

  • Or please consider making a one-off donation of your choice.
