Coming Soon - 2020 Room and Board Rates!

Click Here for 2019 Room and Board Rates

Rates are also found on each individual conference listing. Please click here for the conference list. Room & board rates do not include conference program fees.

Standard rooms are in the Oceanic Hotel, Gosport Building, or Cottages with shared half-bathroom. Motel units are rooms in Founders, Sprague, YPRU or Baker with en-suite half-bathroom.

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.



In an effort to make Star Island accessible and affordable for everyone, we’re offering a variety of discounts for the 2019 season. Please visit our discount page for more information.


Financial Grants

Information on 2020 financial grants will be available in the coming months.

If paying at the full rate would preclude you and your family from attending a program, please inform your registrar. Many programs have established scholarships to help in cases of hardship. For more information on these, including deadlines and instructions for applying, see program websites (links below).

Star Island Corporation also has a financial grant program to support this effort. The confidential program is available to individuals and families who are registered for a conference. Please note awards are always partial, and depend on the number of applications received. Although you may apply for both a conference scholarship and financial grant from Star Island Corporation, you may not accept both, and will have to choose between them. Individuals and families who are eligible for one of our discounts may also apply for financial grants.

Financial Grant Application

The financial grant application for 2019 is available here.

Please consider the following when applying for Star Island Financial Grants

  • Applicants are only eligible to accept aid from either their particular conference or Star Island. You are invited to apply to both conference scholarships and a Star Island financial grant, but are allowed to only pick one.
  • Applicants may receive both a Star Island financial grant and a Star Island discount.
  • Star Island financial grant awards will only cover part of room and board, not the full amount.
  • The total amounts given out in financial grants are dependent upon the number of approved applicants.
  • Financial grant applicants must already have registered for the conference.  If paying the registration fees and deposit upfront presents a hardship, exceptions can be made.  Please contact the Island Registrar,
