You Are Worthy - 2024 Feathered Pipe Scholarship Program

You Are Worthy – 2024 Feathered Pipe Scholarship Program

“I was not only in a place of financial need for a retreat, but also an emotional need for quiet, reflection, and rest from the pressure of everyday demands of work and home. I am grateful to be a recipient of this scholarship opportunity to remind myself that I am worthy of receiving this gift of healing in the beauty and simplicity of nature.”

~ Brenda, a 2023 scholarship recipient


Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce we are offering $40,000 of retreat scholarships in our 2024 season!

When we asked 2023 scholarship recipients about their experiences, they were unanimously grateful and glad they were able to attend a retreat at the Feathered Pipe Ranch. Many had reservations ahead of time that they weren’t worthy, only to realize in the process that they were. We continuously strive to make our programs available to anyone with a will to come. If you struggle to be able to pay the retreat tuition and also know you would benefit from coming to Feathered Pipe, please know YOU ARE WORTHY and we hope you consider applying.

The Feathered Pipe scholarship program is very much a pay-it-forward initiative. Being able to attend a retreat when one is most in need can be deeply transformative. Many scholarship recipients have gone on to donate to our scholarship program when they were in a better financial situation. This process is so cool to witness.

You Are Worthy - 2024 Feathered Pipe Scholarship ProgramScholarship Round 1 Application period is from Feb 12-26, 2024.

Scholarships, ranging from $500-$1500 each, apply to a specific retreat, and may not be applied retroactively to existing registrations. Please do consider the full cost of attending the retreat including travel to get to Helena, Montana before applying. Click here to learn more and apply.

And the good news is, it’s not hard. Take if from Deborah B., a 2023 recipient, “The scholarship application process was not as difficult as I had feared, since I sometimes face challenges with computer technology. The website and prompts made everything very clear. Even with a brain injury, and accompanying cognitive deficits, I was able to complete the application. The benefits I received from my time at Feathered Pipe Ranch are immeasurable.”
