Young Women's Scholarship Fund

This scholarship pays the cost of attendance for young women (under 35) who will be first-time UUWomenspirit participants, not including membership fees, any additional workshop fees, and merchandise.  The purpose of this fund is to encourage young women to come and experience all UUWomenspirit has to offer. These scholarships are given based on the availability of funds, so apply early!

General Scholarship Fund

Every effort is made to keep the cost of attending as affordable as possible. We would like all interested women to be able to attend, and would like for financial need not to be a barrier for attendance. Several options are available to those for whom the cost is prohibitive. For those who need assistance, scholarship funds are available for UUWomenspirit members. These are available once per twelve month period. We also have other options, including volunteering with The Mountain, to defray costs of food and lodging. Contact us if you are interested in these.

More about the general fund: You may request any amount that you need up to half the amount of program expenses (food, double occupancy lodging, and UUWomenspirit program fee) for one program — either Institute or Gathering. These scholarships are given based on the availability of funds. Additional information may be requested when there are limited funds. 

Details on applying for scholarships

You may apply for one scholarship in a 12 month period. We do this so that we can help as many women as possible attend our event.

 

To be eligible for consideration, you must complete your online registration up to the point of paying. If we offer you a scholarship, you will have one week to complete your registration by paying. If we are unable to honor your request for a scholarship, you can complete your online registration by making your payment or you can let us know that you need to cancel your registration. You must be a member of UUWomenspirit to utilize a scholarship (so if you are granted a scholarship and are not a member, you must become a member before you can use it).


This electronic form is submitted directly to the Scholarship Committee. All scholarship requests are kept confidential. If you have questions, please contact us.

The scholarship application deadline has passed for our Fall 2022 event.

Registration will open for our Spring 2023 event around mid-March.
