Each year, we are delighted to offer a limited number of scholarships for those in need; scholarships are a result of gracious contributions by community members from around the world. We offer as many scholarships as we receive funding for through donations and work-shift buyouts.

The APPLICATION DEADLINE this year was April 8th, so no additional applications will be considered for this year’s gathering.  We anticipate that the scholarship program will once again be available for the festival next year, so we encourage you to keep this opportunity in mind for 2023.  Applications are accepted as soon as registration is opened (typically by early February) until the close of the application window in early April.
