Beckley Retreats Scholarship Program
At Beckley Retreats, the foundation of our business is made strong by a commitment to inclusion and equity.
Time and again, we hear from our participants that our programs are a profound part of their spiritual journeys. Safe and guided psychedelic use, community integration support, and holistic wellbeing practices can lead to deep personal transformation. However, such programs are inaccessible for some.
In addition to leading fully funded programs for US Veterans, we’ve created the Beckley Retreats Scholarship Program, which aims to foster diversity and expand program access for those who may not otherwise be able to participate. We prioritize applicants: a) who have demonstrated financial need, and/or, b) who have been historically underserved, underrepresented, or oppressed.
To apply for the scholarship, we ask for a personal and financial assistance questionnaire, including a short letter to our team.
When applying, please also note the following:
- Scholarship recipients must be approved through our standard screening process in order to be accepted into the retreat.
- Recipient retreat dates are based on availability.
- Airfare is not included in the scholarship.
- Scholarship awards range from 25% – 100% of program costs.
*Applications will re-open on March 4th, 2024.
While we have limited primary scholarships available, our Beckley Retreats Discounted Standby Program offers discounted retreat spots as they become available. This program will notify scholarship applicants of any last-minute cancellations or openings in our programs; the discounts will range from 35-50% on any available spot on the program (based on available room type).
In order to qualify for the program we must have both a Scholarship Application and Participant Application completed within the last 6 months on file for you. If you are unsure if our team has these items on file, please feel free to connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to confirm your status.
As a public benefit corporation, we are committed to building a sustainable business and increasing safe, equitable access to our programs. We’ve created the Beckley Retreats Discounted Standby Program in partnership with a non-profit to create more accessible opportunities to attend our programs.
Donate To Support Others
Many members of our community feel personally aligned with Beckley Retreats’ focus on supporting others. We’ve just made giving back very simple. As a part of our community initiatives, there’s now an opportunity to help others who may otherwise not have the resources to experience our transformational program. All donations are applied directly to our growing Scholarship Program, where underrepresented people or individuals in need are able to apply for assistance. At Beckley Retreats, the community of support is robust, and we’re happy to honor the desire to pay it forward and extend the reach of our scholarships.
*Donations can also be completed at checkout during program registration.
