Scholarships

These scholarships are made possible by you! Funds & handmade items are donated throughout the year for this year’s scholarships with many items being gifted by previous years’ attendees. Throughout the gathering weekend everyone is welcome to participate in our raffle whose proceeds go towards scholarships for the following year. In addition, we have an official Spirit Weavers Merchandise booth and online store where all proceeds go towards scholarships as well.  If you feel called to donate or help with our scholarship fund, please email: swgsponsorship@gmaill.com.

You are welcome to apply for more than one scholarship but please be mindful that we receive a large number of applications and consider applying for one or two that are best suited for you. Please direct any scholarship questions to weaversscholarships@gmail.com

Jaime Olivia – Scholarships

i am a queer artist, kitchen witch, animal lover, devoted coffee drinker, budding herbalist and all around busybody (shoutout to my gemini sun!) hailing from wampanoag lands more widely known as martha’s vineyard. as someone who never thrived within the traditional

education system, i took a gap year after graduating high school in 2008 and never looked back. since then life in general, the world at large and the myriad of eclectic folx i’ve met along the way have been invaluable teachers. in 2011 i fled the east coast in search of  a more vibrant, more diverse community and crash landed on my best friends’ couch in san francisco. after seven magical years loving & living in the bay my partner & i moved to central utah where i’ve found myself spending more and more time in nature admiring and communing with the plethora of plants near my home. This year I will continue various self-guided studies around herbalism & ancestral wisdom. i am a fervent believer that each and every one of us has magic & medicine to share with the world and it is my hope that someday in the not so far off future i will use my (growing) knowledge & love of plants to empower others to take their spiritual, physical and mental wellbeing into their own hands.
