It is our sincere wish that access to the teachings and the opportunity to learn in community be accessible to all who are interested. We encourage folks to please apply for financial assistance should this support you to attend BCIMS’ offerings. We are grateful to the generosity of individuals donating to our Scholarship Fund. More information about the fund can be found here.
For Residential Retreats:
Financial assistance is available on all residential retreats. For more detailed information, we encourage you to please visit the Eventbrite link for the retreat you are interested in. The deadline for financial assistance applications is shared on Eventbrite, and is typically two weeks before registration opens up to public. To apply, please simply email email@example.com. Currently, we are inviting applicants to indicate the amount of assistance that feels supportive to them. We endeavour to meet folks at their request, but as financial assistance funds are limited, the number of scholarships per retreat is also limited. If the requests exceed our funds, applicants are entered into a random draw. Applicants will receive an email response regarding their application before registration opens.
If you apply after the application date and if scholarship funds are still available for this retreat, your application will still be considered.
For Non-Residential Retreats, Online Retreats, Events and Classes:
BCIMS offers registration fees on a sliding scale for our non-residential retreats, online retreats, classes, and other events. We encourage you to choose the rate that you can joyfully offer. No one is turned away for lack of funds. If you require additional financial assistance to attend an event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of the retreats held by BCIMS are sponsored by outside groups. If you are interested in attending a retreat not sponsored by BCIMS, please contact the sponsoring/organizing group directly for financial assistance information.
