The European Rolfing® Association has established a scholarship program to help candidates who wish to become Rolfers® but lack the financial resources.


How to qualify for a scholarship

To qualify for the Scholarship, future Rolfing® students should have experienced at least five Rolfing sessions of the 10-series.

In addition, they need a personal suitability recommendation from their Rolfer. If you have not yet seen a Rolfer and have not yet started a 10-Series, you can find a Rolfer near you here to start your Rolfing experience.



  • An application for the scholarship can already be made before the start of the Level 1 training until entry into Level 3, provided that the application deadline has been met.
  • The support provided by the scholarship and thus the payment of the advertised amount generally relates to Level 3 and will therefore be offset against the invoice for Level 3.
  • We expect our scholarship holders to practice as a member of the European Rolfing® Association e.V. for at least 3 years after certification.


How to apply for a scholarship

You must submit the following documents before the deadline:

  • A letter of recommendation by your Rolfer
  • A personal statement explaining why you would like to become a Rolfer (letter of motivation, no more than one page in A4 format) 
  • A report on your experience of the Rolfing® 10-series you have received (at least five sessions should be completed). Review per session at least 50 words
  • A statement of your financial situation (income tax assessment, proof of income for the last three months)

Deadline: 01. August 2024       Next deadline: to be announced

Further proceedings

The scholarship committee of the European Rolfing Association will examine your application thoroughly and give you a response within six weeks after application deadline.
