Hearts Open Wide: With You in Mind
Stress Reduction Program Tuition Assistance
In the spirit of generosity, we, at the Center for Mindfulness, are committed to creating broad access to all of our programs for those who are committed to exploring the benefits of learning and teaching mindfulness practice, and who cannot afford to pay full tuition. We recognize that all individuals and families experience unanticipated fluctuations and/or challenges in their financial lives, and we do not want cost to be the sole determining factor in whether or not you participate in our programs. Therefore, if you are interested, and feel you cannot attend a program due to its cost, you are strongly encouraged to apply for tuition assistance.
A designated evaluation and assessment team for each program reviews your application, financial need and the funds available. You may apply for tuition assistance for up to two programs per year. Priority, however, is given to those applying for the first time. A separate tuition assistance application is required for each program.
Because of the volume of requests for tuition assistance and our wish to support as many as possible, the full cost of a program is rarely covered by one of our scholarships.
Assessment for eligibility and award of tuition assistance begins with completing the registration process outlined below.
The first step toward enrollment in the Stress Reduction Program is to sign-up for an Orientation Session
, which is free of charge and required of all participants before being accepted into the Stress Reduction Program.
Once you have registered for an Orientation Session, you may apply for tuition assistance by either requesting an application via phone, email, or by completing the form below.
Your tuition assistance application must be received by the Center for Mindfulness by the second to last scheduled orientation
. Notification of tuition assistance award will be made by the last
scheduled orientation (please click here for the specific dates
). Everyone is asked to make the first installment payment at the point of registration to guarantee class enrollment. Any tuition assistance will be applied to future payments..
In addition to this tuition assistance program, we also offer two additional forms of financial support through a sliding scale based on household income and a 6-month pay-over-time plan. Click here
