In an ideal world, money wouldn’t get in the way of becoming the best version of yourself. Yes!

This is why we partnered with amazing companies that support women: like Boxy Charm to offer thousands worth of scholarships for the ladies interested in the retreat, where you will learn about the entrepreneurial mindset, paths to become a digital nomad, how to leverage your skills, how to make the best videos, how to tell your story, and ALL THE THINGS!

Please share it with friends and have them apply. The more applications, the more scholarships we can try to get for you! 


1.) This is a need based scholarship , which means it is meant for women who CANNOT afford it otherwise. To apply for the retreat as a self-funded guest, please click here. Preference goes to women with amazing skills, goals, and drive but from a difficult country or background. Ideal candidates will request a partial scholarship to fill a gap (but there are full scholarships available if truly necessary). Partial scholarships have a higher chance of being awarded, as that will mean more girls will receive scholarships and they will be spread out. Please note: Participants are responsible for your flights and visas.

2.) Retreat website – please read about it before applying!
Dates: March 8-14

3.) We’re excited to meet you and train a new group of women to share their passions, stories, and messages to help others and change the world!

Class is in session!

Application Process:

1.) Record a video of yourself on your phone or laptop.

Here are some ideas: What hardships have you faced – why do you need a scholarship? What have you overcome and are proud of? WHAT you will do with everything you learn, HOW you want to change the world. What do you care about? Animal rescue? Entrepreneurship? Helping foster kids? Educating on social issues? Showing women from tough childhoods that they can overcome and succeed? BE SPECIFIC NOT GENERIC. Who are you? What do you stand for.

Think about what you will say before you say it. Show us YOU!
