Feathered Pipe Retreat Scholarship Application

Thank you for your interest in applying for a scholarship for a Feathered Pipe hosted retreat! We are a small organization and are grateful to our big-hearted donors who make it possible for us award scholarships that partially cover tuition and accommodation (including basic lodging and meals, excluding travel expenses and accommodation upgrades).


Scholarships do not cover the full cost of attending a retreat. Scholarships, which range from $500 to $750, are deducted from retreat tuition. Check the website for details about a particular retreat’s tuition.

Bear in mind that tuition does not include travel expenses. We strongly recommend looking into your travel costs to the Feathered Pipe Ranch in Helena, Montana before you apply, so you have a more complete picture of your total out-of-pocket expenses.

For example, if you apply for a retreat with a tuition and tax of $2520, a scholarship award of $500 will reduce your cost to $2020 (before travel expenses).

We will notify you of the results of your application by email by June 29, 2024. If you’re offered a scholarship, you will need to register for the retreat by July 13, 2024, and pay a non-refundable $500 deposit. Any remaining balance is due four weeks before the retreat starts with awarded scholarship applied to remaining balance due.

Scholarships apply to a specific workshop, and may not be applied retroactively to existing registrations. Scholarships ranging from $500-$750 are available for the following 2024 retreat:

 Lanita Varshell & Diane Ambrosini: Opening to the Joyful Flow of Life: Mindfulness, Gentle Yoga & Joyful Movement
