The goal of the ELEVATE Northeast Scholarship Fund program is to help future cannabis employees and entrepreneurs experience real-world training and education that will bolster their ability to earn viable positions in the cannabis industry. Through this program ELEVATE Northeast endeavors to attract to the cannabis industry students who have a passion for cannabis and who want to ensure the cannabis space is diverse, equitable, and fair. This program is designed to include students from targeted areas of disproportionate impact, as such ELEVATE Northeast will create outreach and enrollment activities to encourage participation from applicants who come from majority-minority and low income communities.
Scholarships are funded by donations made from cannabis businesses who share ELEVATE Northeast’s passion for breaking stigma and creating opportunities through education.
All are welcome to donate to this fund!
Scholarship recipient eligibility is based on IRC Section 4946 – Definition of Disqualified Person.
