Sangha offers a limited number of scholarships to retreats for those who need financial assistance. Scholarships are awarded based on a number of criteria, including availability of scholarship funds,
applicant’s financial need, and prior scholarships awarded to the
applicant. We cannot guarantee a scholarship award to any individual.
