PaganPath is celebrating 17 years online*, and we are awarding a scholarship each month for the entire year. Learn how to become a Premium Member with full Academy access free - or donate to the scholarship fund to sponsor a new Member.
Premium Members pay modest yearly dues and have access to the PaganPath Academy, online books and many extra features. These dues cover server fees, new software (such as the online Tarot reading program and the upcoming mobile app) and keep PaganPath free of advertising and marketing.
Periodically, we offer specials to save you money on Membership dues, but even with discounts, some people simply cannot afford the dues.
If you are on a tight budget, doing something for yourself is a rare occasion and often impossible. However, there is no need to neglect your spiritual path and you are welcome to apply for a PaganPath Academy Scholarship.
If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, enter the amount and donate through PayPal here:
If you cannot afford the Membership dues, apply for a scholarship by reading through the requirements and application below:
There is a points system in place on the site that you can use to get a scholarship, but for now those scholarships are on hold while we offer this more concise system to get access to people who really need the assistance.
This is an honor system and we ask that you carefully consider if you qualify. If you can afford a take-out pizza or a steak dinner once a week or a $3 cup of gourmet coffee or soda pop every day, you can probably afford the yearly Membership dues.
If you cannot afford these or similar occasional luxuries, please consider applying for a PaganPath scholarship. It is sometimes quite healthy to acknowledge that You deserve something special for yourself. It is only by being whole individuals that we are in a place to help others. So, if you haven't done anything for yourself lately, and couldn't afford to even if you wanted, please apply for the scholarship!
