Deo Volente', Inc, Gull's Scholarships is a time honored, and loving tradition brought to you on the wings of many Gull's throughout the years. When Rosie and Lela were walking the beach dreaming about creating an organization that helps women in recovery, their core motivation was to find a way to allow all women in recovery to enjoy the outer banks as they had been so blessed to be able to do in their lives. Since the beginning, helping women who may have fallen on hard times, or may still be in the process of re-creating their lives through the principals of the programs we live, has been a core value in the mission of Deo Volente, Inc. If you or someone you know wants or needs to attend the Gull's Serenity Retreats and cannot afford to do so this retreat, there are a limited number of one-time scholarships available offering financial assistance to help.
Deo Volente, Inc. Gull's Scholarships are available to anyone and can be utilized once by each Gull taking advantage of this God given program.
Golden Gull Scholarships are available for DV members who have served in Deo Volente, Inc. for 5 or more years, and are living on a fixed income, who would otherwise not be able to attend the retreats. The Golden Gull Scholarship can be used by our "Long-Timers" up to once every two years. Scholarships are the gift that keeps on giving and many of our scholarship recipients return to the retreats year after year and volunteer to help with the retreat and in many other ways to help other women share in this wonderful tradition inspired by our founding members.
