Financial Aid for Workshops

We value personal growth and education for all, offering generous financial aid for many programs.

Embrace the vibrant possibilities of midlife, rekindle old dreams, and unearth new aspirations at the world’s first midlife wisdom school. A portion of our workshop participants can receive a financial aid award on a need-aware basis at two different levels.

  • Participants are responsible for $3,000 tuition (50% of full workshop tuition) and their travel costs.
  • We will announce gold-level awards within 5 days of application submission.
  • Gold-level applicants may get private rooms if available.
  • You will be placed on an upgrade waitlist for a private room – exceptions for specific medical or personal conditions may be considered.
  • Participants are responsible for only $500 tuition and their travel costs.
  • We will announce platinum-level awards no more than 5 weeks before the requested workshop start date.
  • Platinum-level applicants will be in a shared room with another participant of the same gender.
  • Given how much demand we have for this most generous form of financial aid, a small percentage of those who apply are able to be accepted.
Once accepted, full payment is due within 5 business days. All prices are in USD. A 7% lodging tax and a $100 service fee will be added to your final invoice.

People say "wow you've changed". I don't think I've changed, I think the person inside me can finally come out. I put my walls down and feel so good being me, flaws and all.
