In order to provide financial assistance to as many people as possible, we do not award full scholarships, but only provide partial support for attendance. Work trades are not available.
• All scholarships offer entrance to SpiritFire Festival at the reduced rate of $200.
• The scholarship registration fee is due in full by May 4th. If full payment is not received by that date, the scholarship offer will be rescinded and given to someone on the waiting list. • The reduced rate does NOT cover the $5 fee charged to us by PayPal for online registration. Therefore, if you register online, you will also have to pay this fee.
• No extra work is required from those receiving scholarships; however, those who receive scholarships are expected to sign up for a regular community work shift.
Also, please note that due to the limited number of scholarships available, it is our custom generally (a) to give priority to people who have not received a scholarship in a previous year, and (b) to give only one scholarship per family group (including couples).
It’s hard to share personal reasons for needing financial assistance, but scholarships are in high demand, and we try to have as much information as possible in order to make fair decisions.
