Our scholarship program provides partial and full scholarships to attend the Gathering. Every year we work hard to increase the number of full scholarships we’re able to offer our greater Spirit Weavers Community.


Spirit Weavers recognizes the importance of Solidarity and Allyship work. Having a variety of scholarships available is just one of the many ways we continue to open this container for all walks of life. Thank you for believing in these small but potent offerings as we strive to create a diverse, empowering, and unique gathering.


This year we are happy to announce we have 20 scholarships available for the 2024 gathering.

These scholarships are made possible by you and our web of community support!

Every year, Spirit Weavers hosts a raffle with a huge variety of exciting prizes,  all generously donated by our marketplace vendors, sponsorship partners and community members. The raffle takes place throughout the gathering weekend and everyone can participate!  100% of the raffle funds go towards scholarship tickets for the following year.  In addition, we have an official Spirit Weavers Merchandise booth and online store where all proceeds also go towards the following year’s Scholarship tickets.
