MBSR Financial Assistance
Hearts Open Wide: With You in Mind
In the spirit of generosity, Jupiter Medical Center Mindfulness-Based Stress
Reduction (MBSR) program is committed to creating broad access to its
program for those who are interested in exploring the benefits of mindfulness
practice. We recognize that unanticipated financial challenges occur,
and we do not want cost to be the sole determining factor in whether or
not you participate in our program. Therefore, if you are interested,
and feel you cannot attend a program due to its cost, you are strongly
encouraged to apply for a scholarship.
How to Apply
You may apply for a scholarship for one program per year. Priority is given
to those applying for the first time. A separate scholarship application
is required for each year. Because of the volume of requests for scholarships
and our wish to support as many as possible, the full cost of a program
is rarely covered by one of our scholarships. Eligibility is determined
based on the
Health Care District of Palm Beach County 2016-2017 Federal Poverty Level
Guidelines. Assessment for eligibility and award of a scholarship begins with completing
the registration process outlined below.
The first step toward enrollment in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
program is to sign-up for an Orientation Session, which is free of charge
and required of all participants before being accepted.
Once you have registered for an Orientation Session, you may download the
scholarship application by clicking here. If you do not have access to a computer or would like a paper application
mailed, please call 561-660-1828. Please complete the scholarship application
in its entirety and email it to
Your scholarship application must be received by the MBSR program by the
scheduled orientation. Notification of a scholarship award will be made
prior to the first class (please click here for the MBSR annual calendar).
