Welcome to the Sex Coach U Scholarship application!

You are here because you intend to be a game-changer in your community and in the wider world to create sexual health and wellness, and we’re so excited to meet you!

We are proud to train the next generation of game changers and thought leaders, with students and grads in over 80 countries around the world. 

SCU scholarships are our way of paying it forward. We wish to enable qualified prospective students—those with the passion and dedication to make a real difference in the world, but lack the means to pay for the full training—to enroll in the program and realize their dreams.

When you receive a partial-tuition scholarship for the Certified Sex Coach™ program, you receive a significant discount on the course fees and entry to an elite community of sex coaches and sexologists.

Our scholarships cover 50% of your tuition and you will be responsible for the other half, which can be paid in full or broken into monthly installments.

We award ONE need-based scholarship each enrollment period on a case by case basis to the most dedicated students who are poised to create the most benefit to their communities.

Scholarships are offered at the discretion of the Management Team, in consultation with the Sex Coach U Diversity Advisory Council when needed. 

We award one (1) need-based scholarships each enrollment period. The scholarship recipient must fall into at least one of the following categories.

  • Someone who resides in the United States AND identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color.
  • Someone who resides in another country AND identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color.
  • Someone with Special Circumstances, such as serving disadvantaged or marginalized populations, and/or being a person with disabilities or other conditions eligible for consideration.

Ready to Apply?

If you meet the criteria and truly feel qualified to apply for one of these scholarships, then please click the button below. You will either be taken directly to the Application form, if enrollment is currently open, or you’ll be directed to our Interest List, where we’ll announce the next dates the application will be open.

The number of scholarships available during any enrollment period are extremely limited. Toward the end of the enrollment period, we will notify you if you’ve been awarded a scholarship.

If you do not qualify for or are not awarded a scholarship, you may still qualify to enroll at the full tuition price (perhaps using one of our payment plan options to make it more affordable). You will not be required to fill out any additional forms; we’ll just ask you to confirm if you’re interested in enrolling at a non-scholarship tuition rate.
