Scholarship Information

Scholarship applications for the 2017 Retreat

will be available June 5, 2017.

A limited number of scholarships to cover costs related to attending the LGBTQ Muslim Retreat will be offered. These costs include registration, accommodations, & meals.  

We regret that we do not have the capacity to provide scholarships to cover travel. 
In the future, we hope to provide increased funding to individuals who may not otherwise be able to attend.

Please review the scholarship application evaluation criteria. The more information you offer, the better we can evaluate your application.
