Dharma Ocean is committed to helping as many people attend programs as possible. To that end, we offer partial scholarships and financial aid opportunities for Dharma Ocean retreats and online programs. Awards are based on financial need.
We are not currently offering work-study for our programs.
Financial need is defined as the inability to pay in full for a retreat, based on an individual’s total financial situation. The total number of scholarships and amount of each award are determined on a retreat-by-retreat basis dependent on enrollment, scholarship requests, and availability of funds.
- You will be required to select dorm-style accommodations.
- You must register for the program you wish to attend before applying for a scholarship. Make a note of the cost of the program so you can be clear what amount of support you need.
- During registration, you will be given the option to defer payment until you have received notification about your scholarship.
