Apply for a full or partial scholarship to one of our retreats.
Please read the details and FAQ carefully before applying.
Spring Retreat - 12/1/18 - You will be notified no later than 1/1/19 and, if offered a scholarship, you will be asked to confirm your attendance by 1/8/19.
Fall Retreat - 5/1/19 - You will be notified no later than 6/1/19 and, if offered a scholarship, you will be asked to confirm your attendance by 6/8/19.
BALANCE DUE: For recipients of partial scholarships, any remaining balance will become due and payable when you receive your registration confirmation from NINE.
TRANSPORTATION: The cost of transportation to/from NINE is NOT included
How do I make sure I am registered? Submitting a scholarship application does not automatically register you for the retreat. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive two emails: one with a letter of acceptance and the other with a confirmation of your registration. For recipients of partial scholarships, any remaining balance will become due and payable when you receive your confirmation.
If I am not awarded a scholarship, is there any chance I could get one later? If you do not receive a scholarship, you will be put on a waiting list. If someone cancels their scholarship, we reconsider people on the waiting list.
Can I apply for a scholarship if I’ve received one in the past? Please wait 3 years before applying again. It is our goal and wish to allow new women the opportunity to receive.
How do you decide who receives a scholarship? Applications are assessed taking into account financial need (using the guidelines below) and responses to the personal essay questions.
Scholarships are primarily, but not exclusively, awarded to:
women who will bring a diversity of perspectives, background, and experience to the retreat;
want to apply what they learn to their personal development, work, or studies, and in their community;
would not be able to afford to attend the retreat without a scholarship; and can commit to attending the full retreat.
