Financial Assistance and Scholarships

The Zen Center Scholarship Fund was established to help those people unable to meet the costs of taking part in the programs at Zen Center. We welcome all scholarship applications. Please call 415.354.0360 or email if you have further questions.

Fees for practice offerings, workshops, classes and special events are kept as low as possible. These fees are, however, a major source of operating income for San Francisco Zen Center. Zen Center offers both limited income prices and scholarship assistance to those who are genuinely unable to afford the listed or limited income price of a particular program offering.
