Scholarship Guide

for the Ed for Good Scholarship Fund

Our mission is to multiply the impact teachers make on the world.

We stand by this mission because we believe in education as a means for transforming people's lives, especially those facing economic and social barriers.

If you're an educator doing social good and in need of financial assistance, we'd like to help.

This Scholarship Guide provides an overview of our quarterly Ed for Good Scholarship Fund, who is eligible to apply for a scholarship, and where to apply.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

Cofounder & CEO of Pathwright


Ed for Good Scholarship Fund applications are evaluated based on financial need, how well an educator fits the scholarship conditions, and the remaining balance from each quarter's scholarship funds.

Please review the eligibility criteria below and apply for the Ed for Good Scholarship Fund if you meet at least one of these conditions:

1. You offer free or very low-cost courses to people who may not be able to otherwise afford it.

Example: Mountain BizWorks is a non-profit that helps local small businesses start, grow, and create jobs through loans, classes, and coaching. They offer their course, Investment Crowdfunding, free to small business owners in North Carolina to ensure financial opportunities are affordable for everyone.

Example: Julie Valentine Center is a non-profit organization that provides free confidential services to victims of sexual assault and child abuse. They moved their programs online to continue training parents and communities through a challenging time both socially and financially.

As a small nonprofit, Pathwright has opened the door for us to provide education and training in ways we never thought possible. Whether it is for a client support group or a nation-wide training, courses are easy to create, organize, and navigate. Learners have access to all course materials in one place and are able to easily interact with each other and course instructors.

— Kaci Rackley, Executive Operations Coordinator at Julie Valentine Center

2. You use Pathwright as an individual teacher or student in a K-12, university classroom, or for homeschool.

Example: Professor Renee Hobbs uses Pathwright to teach communication studies at the Harrington School of Communication and Media at the University of Rhode Island.

3. You use Pathwright as small business, small non-profit, or in a country where the currency exchange rate to USD would be a significant barrier.

Scholarship Q&A

What plans do Scholarships Apply to?

Scholarships apply to the Starter through Complete Plans (see our Pricing page).

Are there any limitations to a Scholarship Plan?

There are two limitations:

  • Since video storage and streaming is expensive, we ask our scholarship accounts to use Vimeo, YouTube, and other video providers for any video instead of the built-in Pathwright video uploader.
  • Additionally, advanced technical features like SSO and APIs require initial and ongoing technical support and aren't included in scholarship plans.

How big of a Scholarship can I expect?

Typically scholarships are for 20% off of the Starter, Essentials, or Complete Plan for one year.
