Free Spirit Gathering is pleased to offer its Community Scholarship Program. Free Spirit Gathering is one of the country’s largest and oldest Pagan Gatherings. Held each year in June, we bring together over 600 people to exchange ideas, share knowledge and become community. This program is an outgrowth of our belief that through education and knowledge, fear and mistrust are diminished; and the fact that our children are the future of our community.

The program consists of one or two $500 awards given to students in an undergraduate or graduate program of higher learning. The student does not have to be pursuing a traditional program of study at a traditional college. Enrollment in a therapeutic massage program, holistic healing program or other non-traditional program qualifies.

Scholarship funding comes from donations made by the community. The application period is now open and will be open through April 16, 2010. The winner will be announced on May 4, 2010.

 

   
           

The selection committee is made up of two members from Free Spirit and two members from the Pagan Community. Applications are ranked, with emphasis being given to the essay section, and the two highest-scoring candidates are selected. In the event that the selection committee cannot reach a decision, the top candidates are referred to the Board of Trustees of Free Spirit for final determination.

Even though the scholarship is given by a Pagan organization, it is open to students from any religious background. We feel the character, ideals and values of the individual are more important than religious affiliation. In addition to the cash award the selected candidate will be offered a complimentary admission to Free Spirit Gathering where the award will be presented.
