Through a collaboration between PlantPure Communities (PPC) and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS), Group Leaders in the PlantPure Communities Pod Network are eligible to apply for a limited number of Scholarships for the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program offered through CNS and eCornell. This scholarship opportunity is intended to ensure that the educational benefits of plant-based nutrition are shared with leaders in communities across the country who are working to improve their lives, the lives of their neighbors and their community.

The application for round 5 opened on September 1, 2018 and closed on October 1, 2018. It is anticipated that the PPC Board will make scholarship award decisions by late October 2018, but that may change, depending on the volume of submissions.
