About Scholarships
Applying for a Scholarship

We know that there are many inequalities in the world. As a community, one of our most strongly held values is to ensure that individuals without the financial means have the opportunity to be in retreat with Gangaji or to join her online gatherings. We recognize that we are indeed the same one, the same heart, and some of us just need a little help from our friends.

A limited number of full and partial scholarships are awarded for each retreat and for memberships to Gangaji's monthly online meetings. The criteria used for awarding scholarships include a strong commitment to be with Gangaji, financial need, and the amount of funds available in the scholarship program.

To apply for a retreat scholarship chose your event from the list below.

Note: Scholarships applications are reviewed by our volunteer scholarship committee. We want to assure you that applications are kept strictly confidential.
