Bambi Chapman Scholarship

Bambi is a stillbirthday mother.  She is Mary Beth’s mother.

Mary Beth wasn’t born via miscarriage or stillbirth.  She was born alive, but she died soon after.

Bambi’s darkest days teach us what so many people can do better: birth professionals of all levels, paramedics, church family, the community, and, even other mothers.

Recipients of the Bambi Chapman Scholarship will demonstrate a mature and humble desire to improve their demographic, to better serve bereaved families, to minimize the potential of secondary trauma that can occur when abandonment, shame, betrayal and neglect happen, and to maximize and magnify healing opportunities among bereaved families and individuals.


  • Any parent who has experienced bereavement through pregnancy & infant loss.


One Bambi Chapman Scholarship will be awarded each SBD training session.  The Scholarship award grants 100% tuition toward the SBD training for the chosen recipient.  In addition, once the recipient has been awarded the Bambi Chapman Scholarship,  he or she will also be entitled to bear the Scholarship logo.

Please be advised that I do not send “rejection letters”.  Each and every application is important.  I believe your submission may be powerful, poignant, thought provoking, emotion evoking, and heartwarming, yet another name may be chosen for this particular scholarship.  You can check our updated class roster from Stillbirthday University as it will indicate the names of scholarship recipients.  If you do not yet see one listed for that session, one has not been designated yet.

01.} a place of study or training in a special field
02.} a society or institution of distinguished scholars, artists, or scientists, that aims to promote and maintain standards in its particular field
