Summer camp scholarships
Global Citizens Summer Camp is fully committed to welcoming a diverse group of students that represents an economically, racially, and culturally diverse community. Not to let financial barriers get in the way of a child’s access to participate, Global Citizens Summer Camp has a limited number of scholarships, valued at up to $500 per child, available for students who qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. In addition, we will consider additional factors such as extenuating family circumstances.
We especially encourage families to apply if:
You receive SNAP
You receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
You receive Earned Income Credit (EIC)
Scholarship applicants must complete and submit the following to [email protected] within one week of registration of summer camp:
Proof of eligibility (supporting documentation to verify your household income or circumstances. This may include tax returns, a statement of benefits or documentation from your school lunch program, or a signed statement from a school official that you are income eligible for free or reduced price lunches, or a statement from a caseworker or other professional who is familiar with your family’s circumstances).
Qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship award or guarantee a spot in the session of your choice.
No-shows: Global Citizens Summer Camp strives to offer as many children as possible the opportunity to have an enriching Chinese immersion camp experience. As such, we take no-shows seriously. If you are unable to take advantage of our camp, kindly let us know via phone or email at least two weeks before camp starts so we may offer the slot to another eligible child. If we do not receive notice of cancellation, it is possible your child may not be considered for future scholarship opportunities.
Cancellation of camp session is permitted no less than 14 days before the session begins, must be done in writing/email to [email protected], and will result in a $50 cancellation fee.
