New Scholarships at Rolf Institute of Structural Integration

RISI logo 2015 horiz thkThe Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, in Boulder, Colorado, is offering two new tuition scholarships, along with Veterans Administration and Title IV financial aid for students interested in becoming a Certified Rolfer. The assistance can help those looking toward becoming practitioners skilled in manipulating fascia—the connective tissue that surrounds all body organs—to improve the body’s structure, providing easier breathing and overall flexibility.

The Jim Jones Tuition Scholarship, honoring the Institute’s late Director of Education, covers the full tuition, valued at more than $18,000, for the Basic Rolfing Training program; the application deadline is December 1. Research professionals and college students in graduate programs that are researching and publishing in peer-reviewed journals can apply now for the Research Tuition Scholarship that provides 50 percent coverage of tuition.

Structural Integration was pioneered by Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the early 1970s. The Institute was the first of its kind to establish and require substantive training and certification. Executive Director Christina Howe states that the financial support will assist students seeking a career in a complementary health profession such as Rolfing Structural Integration.
