FAQ

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.

 Please note that fitting into these financial guidelines does not automatically qualify you for a scholarship.
