Professional Development Scholarships

Are you interested in investing in yourself? NTEN’s courses provide the in-depth knowledge and skills you need to further your career. And thanks to generous support from NTEN’s sponsors and donations from several faculty members, scholarships are now available for individual courses and full professional certification programs.

In addition to these scholarships, we also have fully funded Nonprofit Tech Readiness cohorts in the fall of 2021. Applications open in late summer. NTR cohorts have access to the Nonprofit Technology Certificate and additional programming.


Course scholarships cover the cost of enrollment in one NTEN course. There is a limit of one scholarship per individual, and it may be used for any course. The Courses page has detailed information about all available courses. Individual course scholarships are available.

Who Should Apply

These scholarships are part of NTEN’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and are intended to support those who meet the following criteria:

  • Those who work for a nonprofit (or social service agency) or are seeking employment in the nonprofit sector.
  • Those who can demonstrate how this professional development will advance their career, personal mission, or organization’s mission (if applicable).
  • Consideration may be given to folks dependent upon their organization’s professional development budget.


Scholarships are available on a rolling basis when available, with applications reviewed weekly.
