Offer: Scholarships for the Women and Power Retreat: Leading From the Inside Out (APPLY BY APRIL 11)

The Women's Institute at Omega is pleased to announce that scholarships are available for Leading From the Inside Out: A Women & Power Retreat, July 8–10, 2011. The retreat will focus on personal development, providing skills that help women retrieve and express our authentic values and voice. It is a chance for us to slow down, go within, and learn to access our inner strength and full aliveness.

Please read all details thoroughly before filling out an application.

Details This scholarship covers the following:

* Full cost of the retreat weekend
* Accommodations, if needed (shared or unshared, depending on availability; commuter scholarships also available)
* All meals
* Omega's optional classes (meditation, yoga, tai'chi, and dance) and evening performances
* Access to campus amenities like the sauna, Long Pond Lake, and the Sanctuary
* The Omega shuttle bus from New York City, if needed

Scholarships are offered primarily to women between the ages of 18 and 29. Scholarships are awarded to women who will bring a diversity of color, nationality, and professional experience to the event; to women who want to share the experience at home in their workplace or community; to women who would not be able to afford to attend the event without the scholarship; and to women who can commit to attending the full event. Past scholarship recipients to Women & Power conferences are encouraged to apply.

In general, Omega considers an applicant eligible for scholarship if her income is not more than 2.5 times the Federal Poverty level as set forth in the United States Federal Guidelines. Please see the table below to determine your financial eligibility.
