Omega’s Rhinebeck Campus Reopens with Increased Focus on Broadening Access to Lifelong Learning

Scholarships Now Available for More Than 25 Workshops, Plus Tiered Pricing on Select Workshops & All Livestream Events

RHINEBECK, NY – Omega Institute, a premier destination for lifelong learning in New York's Hudson Valley, today reopens its Rhinebeck campus for six months of in-person workshops, conferences, retreats, and professional training opportunities through October. Scholarships are available for more than 25 workshops, including special opportunities for veterans, women, and historically marginalized communities. Additionally, Omega is a nonprofit that offers sliding-scale tuition on select workshops and all livestream events, as part of its focus on increasing accessibility to holistic learning and building an inclusive, dynamic community.

“Omega is a global community of learners, thinkers, and doers. When a wide variety of perspectives, backgrounds, and identities are represented our community is enriched,” said Omega President and CEO Carla Goldstein. “In addition to scholarships, we’re actively working to expand pathways to participation through live online programs, membership, nonprofit retreat grants, and tiered pricing options.”

Omega’s Scholarship Program is made possible by the generous support of Omega Members, donors, faculty, and institutional funders. A sampling of 2024 scholarship opportunities includes:
