Scholarships for Love Serve Remember Retreats & Immersions

 

Mission

Generosity has been the essential ingredient in the spirit of the lineage that Ram Dass represents through his guru, Neem Karoli Baba.

In the spirit of this tradition, Love Serve Remember is committed to offering financial assistance to those who need it and are dedicated to preserving and continuing these teachings. LSRF does not want cost to be an obstacle for participation. If you cannot attend a retreat or immersion due to funds, we strongly encourage you to apply for a scholarship.

LSRF highly values inclusion and diversity.  We particularly encourage those with limited income who are in the following groups to apply: people of color, young adults (18-26), elders (65+), people with disabilities, LGBTQI+, and Ambassadors. However, anyone with financial need is encouraged to apply.

Each financial assistance request is assessed in terms of financial need, funds availability, and qualification. Each person may be awarded scholarships for a maximum of one retreat per individual.
