Download the Application (Partial Scholarship Application)
Several partial scholarships are available to applicants for both the Summer Program and the Youth Division Summer Program. These scholarships are based on financial need. Include the scholarship application with your program application, as well as a letter from your parents (or you, if you are financially independent) detailing financial need and occupation AND a copy of the first two pages of your parents’ 1040 Tax Return (yours, if you are financially independent). If parents are divorced, both of their 1040 Tax Returns are required. If the parent with whom you live shows less than $15,000 on the 1040 Tax Return, please include the 1040 Tax Return of your stepparent, also. This is in addition to the divorced parent.
