The Sherri Little Fibromyalgia Coaching Scholarship was created by the Institute's founder, Tami Stackelhouse. Jump directly to the application here.
Sherri Little was a personal friend and client of Tami's. When Sherri passed away in July 2015, after a lifelong battle with chronic pain, she left behind coaching sessions that she was unable to use. Through the many conversations they had, Tami knew that Sherri would want these sessions to be used to help women who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford coaching.
Since this scholarship was created, many people have donated money, time, and some of their coaching sessions to help keep Sherri's legacy alive. If you are interested in donating to the scholarship fund, please contact us. Scholarship recipients receive three coaching sessions at a "pay-what-you-can" price. You can learn more about Sherri and the non-profit organization founded in her honor at SherriLittleFoundation.org.
Coaching Scholarship FAQs
Why is this a "pay-what-you-can" scholarship?
We have found that clients get more out of their sessions when they have something invested. In other words, what you get out of your sessions is directly related to what you put into them. In addition, this will allow Sherri's legacy to touch more lives.
Who is eligible for the scholarship?
This scholarship is open to anyone with fibromyalgia who has limited financial resources.
When and where will the coaching take place?
Scholarship recipients will work with their Coach to select the best time and frequency for their one-on-one sessions. Sessions are typically held once per week, are 45 minutes in length, and are held virtually via phone or computer.
