We are pleased that you are interested in UUWomenspirit and hope you will be able to join us at our upcoming event. Every effort is made to keep the cost of attending as affordable as possible, but for those who need assistance, limited scholarship funds are available for UUWomenspirit members.

The deadline has already passed for the Spring 2018 event. Financial aid will be available for the Fall 2018 event and applications will be accepted after registration opens (around mid-August 2018).

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. Scholarship decisions are based upon:

  • any history you have of helping at UUWomenspirit events,
  • whether you have attended a UUWomenspirit event before,
  • the nature of your need, and
  • when the application is received prior to the deadline.

You may request any amount that you need up to $125, which covers half of the program expenses (food, lodging, and UUWomenspirit program fee) for one program — either Institute or Gathering. You will be responsible for paying the other half of the program expenses ($125).

To be eligible for consideration, you must complete your online registration up to the point of paying (through step 17 in the instructions). 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.
