Scholarships

Our scholarship program has over 30 years of history. This is how Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram tithes back to our own community, giving 10% of our program revenues to those who need help in order to study.  You may qualify for one of our three types of scholarships, which are available for our asana-based programs.  Click for our Scholarships FAQs.

We offer three types of scholarships, detailed below.  When you apply for a scholarship, we make the process as personal and supportive as possible, while carefully protecting your confidentiality.  Begin with a conversation with one of our Enrollment Advisors or download an application form below.

Hosted Programs Scholarships

Wherever one of our Yogimmersions is held, we offer need-based scholarships to support yogis who would not be able to attend without help. The amount of scholarship is a percentage of the course revenue, a tithe to the community whom we serve in offering the program.

These programs are available for Weekend Workshops and on-the-road Foundations programs, and are awarded 2-3 weeks before the program begins.
