Grants and Scholarships

Late Fees

Certain events may assess late fees and the registration materials will so indicate. 

Please note that registration is not finalized until payment is received. Send payment postmarked no later than the due date requested to avoid any late fees. 

Refund Policy


Cancellations prior to the registration deadline will be refunded. Cancellations received after the registration deadline will not be refunded, however, non-refundable fees are transferrable to another participant. Special requests for refunds will be managed on a case-by-case basis. 


No Shows

Cancellation Policy

The Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia reserves the right to cancel any event. In the event of cancellation, registrants will receive a full refund. We also reserve the right to substitute event presenters and modify dates and programs. 

Special Needs

The Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia serves the entire community and welcomes people with special needs. Please contact the Event Registration Contact at least one week prior to the event with special need requests.
