Through a collaboration between PlantPure Communities (PPC) and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS), Pod 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 everywhere who are working to improve their lives, the lives of their neighbors, and their community.

As of March 2021, 81 scholarships have been awarded to Pod Leaders and co-Pod Leaders since the Scholarship Opportunity began in 2017. Click here to learn about the 2021 scholarship recipients.
