Scholarships & Financial Aid

The Animas community and several incredibly generous and visionary donors make it possible for Animas to grant scholarships for our programs. Scholarships are available for all those who would otherwise be unable to participate. These application-based scholarships are available to all participants regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sex, or gender orientation. We are especially interested in individuals for whom any of the following are true:

  • are in culture-evolution leadership roles, or desire/plan to be in such roles
  • are under age 35 (note: all ages are eligible and welcome!)
  • are people from marginalized or minority communities
  • seek training as soul initiation guides (in our Soulcraft Apprenticeship and Initiation Program) or as nature-based human development guides (in our Wild Mind Training Program)

Our financial aid information and application are available using the links below. Please submit your scholarship application prior to registering for a program, or no later than 2 days after registering for a program. If you are requesting financial assistance for an application-based program, please wait for acceptance into the program prior to submitting your scholarship request. Financial aid applications are reviewed once a week by our scholarship team, so please allow at least two weeks to hear back from us. With this in mind, it may be best for you to register and pay the program’s 30% deposit to secure your place while the scholarship team reviews applications. Our maximum scholarship amount is 70% of the program cost, so the 30% deposit is required regardless of the outcome of your application.

Scholarships are available for North American field and online programs. Online programs produced in the U.S. for international communities, with open registration on our website, are eligible for scholarships as well – all other international offerings are excluded. Please check with the international producer for any financial aid opportunities for non-U.S. programs. The U.S. office does not produce international programs.

We invite you to take the plunge!
