Financial Assistance & Scholarships

At our organization, we are committed to making the Parliament of the World’s Religions as inclusive and accessible as possible. We understand that location and prices are often prohibitive for individuals wishing to attend our events. In order to help mitigate some of the financial constraints, we have developed a Parliament registration financial assistance and scholarship application.

The form will ask some simple questions and based on the answers, the Parliament will determine if the applicant can receive a reduced registration fee or a scholarship to cover the full price of registration. Please note that the questions will require some basic information regarding the applicant's financials.

Before You Apply:

  • We encourage you to apply to volunteer for the 2018 Parliament. Individuals selected to volunteer for the Parliament will receive a reduced registration price of $50. Learn more about volunteering with the Parliament.

  • The form will ask some simple questions and based on your answers, the Parliament will determine if you can receive a reduced registration fee or a scholarship to cover the full price of registration. Please note that the questions will require some basic information regarding your finances.

  • Limit one application per person.

  • The financial assistance and scholarship is limited to the registration cost, it does not offer travel or lodging. 

Complete the Financial Assistance Form

Financial assistance and scholarships will be given on a rolling basis, individuals who receive the aid will have 14 days to register before the offer becomes void. Any financial assistance in registration cost is non-refundable.
