At Sydney Insight Meditators (SIM) we wish to ensure that financial hardship is not a barrier to anyone wanting to attend any of its retreats.
Our goal in administering scholarships is to balance our intention to make it possible for anyone to attend with mindful stewardship of SIM resources. The later come from reserves, surplus from previous events as well as the generosity of supporting retreatants. We hope that everyone applying for scholarships will understand that the questions we ask in this form are solely for this purpose.
We wish to extend as much assistance as we can, although we can not guarantee meeting the full financial need of applicants. Priority will be given to those who have not received a scholarship in the last 12 months.
Scholarships are granted at the discretion of the SIM committee
Please note that a donation (dana) for the teachers is not included in the retreat price or scholarship.
Your application needs to be received four weeks prior to the event. This allows SIM to review all applications in time before the retreat.
