This year, we’re excited to announce that we have five scholarships available to gift to sisters in need. We would like to make the first scholarship available to First Nations/Indigenous Women. To enter for the first scholarship, nominate a sister or yourself by tagging them on Instagram or sending an email to scholarships@spiritweaversgathering.com. Please share what attending this gathering would mean to you or to your sister. We will consider all applications and select a name by Sunday March 20th.  Each Scholarship will be unique in the way you enter.

These scholarships are all made possible by you! Donations of handmade items and funds for this year’s scholarships were made and gifted by women who attended last year’s gathering. We share an amazing raffle throughout the weekend and all funds from the raffle go toward scholarships. In addition, we have added an official Spirit Weavers Merchandise booth and all proceeds will also go to next years Scholarship fund! If you feel called to donate or help with our scholarship fund, please email sponsorship@spiritweavergathering.com.

Spirit Weavers Gathering recognizes the importance of Solidarity and Allyship work. A variety of scholarships is just one of the many ways we continue to open the space for all walks of life. Thank you for patiently being a part of the dialogue as we strive to create a unique and diverse gathering.
