Seva Scholarships

To go deeper into Ashram life

Each year the Shree Peetha Nilaya seva team offers seva scholarships where the Ashram offers you food and accomodation for free for your seva stay. A seva scholarship is usually between one and three month long.

A seva scholarship is for everyone who has been already for several stays as a seva guest in the Ashram and would like to go deeper into the experience of Ashram life.

How to apply for a seva scholarship

To apply for a seva scholarship, please write directly to the teamleader of the seva area which you are interested to join in. Please note: it is only possible to apply for a scholarship in the seva area which is already known to you through previous stays as a seva guest.

By applying for a scholarship you will be asked to do seva same like the Ashram residents. Apart from the daily seva during events all the seva is foccused on running the events and taking care of our guests. Which means very often longer seva hours, or no possibilty to take a day off before, during or after an event and most of the times it will not be possible to participate fully in the event.

Start your seva experience as a seva guest through Bhakti Seva Programm

If you are interested in a seva scholarship, but you have not yet been as a seva guest in Shree Peetha Nilaya the best way is to come as a seva guest for a stay between two to four weeks through our Bhakti Seva Programm. You find more information about this here.

Scholarship possibilities and special skills

below you find an overview of the main areas here in Shree Peetha Nilay which offer seva scholarships throughout the year.

However there are more areas where seva scholarships are possible, especially if you have any special skills which you would like to offer as seva.

This could be for example: graphic design, web developer, audio engineer, video editing, filming, book editing, promotion, fundraising, translations, or any kind of manual skills like carpentry, landscape gardening or special construction skills...
