Scholarships

We encourage individuals with financial challenges to apply for scholarship assistance. It is our sincere wish that financial constraints not be an impediment to individuals’ ability to hear and practice the dharma on retreat.

Financial assistance is available on all retreats, thanks to the generosity of individuals donating to our Scholarship Fund. 

Approved scholarships for most retreats generally come in the form of up to a 50% reduction in the retreat fee.

As financial assistance funds are limited, please apply early.

For each BCIMS retreat that is open for registration;  there is an  "Apply for Scholarship" button that you can click to send a scholarship request to the registrar. 

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 scholarship information.
