Application Deadline: Scholarship applications will be processed starting in February and on a rolling basis thereafter until all spaces are full. We are unable to consider scholarship applications submitted after the deadline. We encourage you to apply as early as possible, as applications are processed in the order received.

Notification: We notify recipients starting in March and on a monthly rolling basis thereafter. We will contact you by email. If you do not have an email address, we will notify you by phone or mail.

Requirements: Priority is given to applicants who haven't been to the Omega Institute. Those who received a scholarship in 2016 or 2017 are not eligible. Because our funding is limited, we are unable to offer a scholarship to every applicant, and may not be able to offer full scholarships. We ask applicants not to register for a program before receiving confirmation of a scholarship. We ask scholarship recipients to commit to completing a survey with questions about their experience of the program, being on campus, and receiving a scholarship.

Please note that if you are applying for Radical Aliveness, you will need to enter your pre-approval code below. If you do not have a pre-approval code, please fill out and submit this application to request an interview with the faculty.

If you are applying for Getting the Love You Want or Wired for Love, each partner must submit a separate application.

FAQ

How do I submit my application?
When should I apply?
We encourage you to apply as early as possible and allow four to six weeks for processing. Applications are assessed on a rolling basis until available funding is exhausted.
When and how will I hear about the status of my application?

We notify recipients starting in March and on a monthly rolling basis thereafter. We will contact you by email. If you do not have an email address, we will notify you by phone or mail.

What do scholarships cover?
  • A full scholarship covers 100% of the total cost of participating in a program on campus. This total cost includes tuition, housing, meals, access to campus amenities, any material fees, and, if applicable, Children’s Program tuition.
  • A partial scholarship covers 25%, 50% or 75% of the total cost, as outlined above, of participating in a program on campus.
  • A commuter scholarship covers 100% of the cost of participating in a program as a daily commuter. The total cost includes tuition, meals, access to campus amenities, any material fees, and, if applicable, Children’s Program tuition. A commuter scholarship does not include housing.
What type of housing covered?

The housing type for this scholarship is a tent cabin. It is directly uphill from campus in the middle of the woods, with the bathroom a short walk away. If you want a different type of housing, you will need to call Registration at 800-944-1001 to check on availability and pay the difference between your chosen housing and the tent cabin scholarship price, which is the camping rate.

Is transportation covered?
The cost of transportation to/from Omega is NOT included in the scholarship; please make sure you are able to cover the cost of your travel expenses.
Why do you request financial information?
One of the ways we assess applications is to take financial need into account (using the guidelines below). Funds for scholarships are limited, and we unfortunately do not have the resources to provide a scholarship to every applicant. Please note that fitting into these financial guidelines does not automatically qualify you for a scholarship.
Household SizeHousehold Income Level
1$30,150
2$40,600
3$51,050
4$61,500
5$71,950
How do you decide who receives a scholarship?

In addition to looking for applicants who will bring their unique perspectives and backgrounds to the learning community and who would not be able to afford to attend the program without a scholarship, we carefully consider responses to the essay questions during our application assessment process.

If I am awarded a scholarship, how do I make sure I am registered for my program?
You can make sure you are registered by confirming your decision to attend within two weeks of being notified of acceptance. If you are unable to confirm your participation, we may offer the scholarship to another applicant. For recipients of partial scholarships, any remaining balance will become due and payable when you receive your confirmation of registration and no later than two weeks before the start of the program. Please note that submitting a scholarship application does not guarantee you a scholarship nor automatically register you for the program.
If I am not awarded a scholarship, is there any chance I could be offered one later?
Applicants who are not offered a scholarship are placed on a waiting list after they are notified. We are unable to respond to status inquiries from applicants on the waiting list. In the event a scholarship becomes available, applicants on the waiting list are contacted. Individuals are welcome to reapply the following year.
What if I still have questions?
If your question was not addressed here, please email scholarships@eomega.org or call 845.256.8144, ext. 180. In your message, please mention the specific program for which you are applying. We may not be able to call you back immediately and appreciate your patience.
