The Foundation recognizes that celebrants who serve families extends beyond licensed funeral directors. Oftentimes hospice and healthcare professionals, clergy, chaplains, educators, counselors, social workers, and others work with funeral homes to provide families with personalized and meaningful memorialization experiences.
Scholarships are available to those who are verifiably affiliated with at least one funeral home and are interested in becoming a Certified Celebrant.
Offered by Insight Institute, and presented by Glenda Stansbury and Matt Bailey, scholarships cover registration fees for the NFDA-hosted preconvention seminar. Scholarships also include up to $1,100 in travel and hotel reimbursement.
