Susie Ellis Scholarship
for Equity in Wellness

The Susie Ellis Scholarship for Equity in Wellness aims to create more inclusivity at the annual Global Wellness Summit by providing financial assistance to members of an underserved population to join the conference each year, ultimately empowering recipients to return to their local communities and become leaders in the wellness industry.

The scholarship is named for Susie Ellis, GWI & GWS Chair & CEO, who has been at the helm of the Summit and its sister non-profit organization, the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), since inception and is very vocal about her commitment to bringing more equity and inclusion to the wellness industry.


The fund aims to create more inclusivity by providing financial assistance to members of underserved populations to benefit from the knowledge, networking and experience of the Global Wellness Summit each year.
