About our Rates

Room and Board covers a portion of our total annual operating costs, such as creating drinking water, generating electricity, properly maintaining our grounds, historic buildings and facilities, and treating and managing wastewater. Star Island Corporation is a 501(c)3 organization, and in addition to room and board, we rely on tax deductible charitable donations.

Financial Grant Application


Please consider the following when applying for grants

  • Applicants may receive both a Star Island grant and a Star Island discount (if applicable).
  • Financial grant awards typically will only cover a portion of room and board, not the full amount.  Also, grants do not cover any programming fees required by the conference.
  • Financial grant applicants must already have registered for the conference.**
  • When applicable, grant applications will be considered by both the Star Island Corporation and the conference grant programs.  You will be offered an award from whichever program can offer the largest grant.  You may only take a grant from one program, not both.
  • Star Island Corporation grants can be awarded to an individual 3 times within 5 years.    

**If paying the registration programming fees and deposit upfront presents a hardship, exceptions can be made.  Please contact the Island Registrar,
