Garrison Institute Now Offers Financial Aid

Room and board assistance available for some retreats

The Garrison Institute has launched a program to cover the costs of room and board for some of its retreats for applicants with financial need. Visit to submit an application online, or email [email protected] for more information.

The program includes work scholarships in which successful applicants can exchange four hours of work for one day of room and board. The institute offers financial aid for select retreats to people of Himalayan descent through a partnership with the Tibet Fund, the Office of Tibet, and the Conservancy for Tibetan Art and Culture.

The Garrison Institute, located on Route 9D near the Philipstown Recreation Center, hosts retreats by a variety of organizations with the goal of applying “the power of contemplation in practical, systematic ways” to fields such as education, health care and ecology.
