As a team of readers, writers, and educators, we understand that financial realities can present a significant barrier to accessing courses like the ones Impracticum offers.
While we can't provide full scholarships, we seek to make our curriculum more accessible to all students by offering partial scholarships to a limited number of students. In the future, we hope to expand the Impracticum Scholarship fund to engage more students in our curriculum.
